So when the opportunity to visit, I jumped at the chance. With a little baby at home, who loves to be outside, it seemed like the perfect Saturday family activity. So, we invited some family to come with us!
Nitsy and the boys!
We got to the Hogle Zoo a little before 10 AM. It was a crisp autum morning, but the weather reprot promised a warm day, so we gave Mirah some leg warmers for a little extra protection.
We found our first photo op infront of the gorilla and orangoutang enclosure.
Judah was a juvenile.
Mirah wanted to see them!
He was just sitting in the grass, eating a head of lettuce.
Zuri has gotten so BIG!!!
THEN, wonder of wonders, the bird show!!! It was supposed to be over on September 3rd… but it was open today after all!! Karl was thrilled.
Mirah’s first bird show!
Nitsy’s first bird show too!
We had to sit down early to get a seat, so the boys had hard time sitting still.
Asher shared Betsy’s sun glasses with a kind old man near us. I just missed the shot, but he put them on the man’s face. It was hysterical.
She started to get fussy too.
So ended up passing out and missing the majority of the show. BUT we didn’t. It was awesome. There was one point where Karl SWORE the he felt an owl’s talon touch his hair.
Finally we headed down to the giraff enclosure. IT WAS bonkers full, we didn’t stay long.
The park started to get super full, and the kids needed a nap, and it was starting to get warm, so we headed toward the entrance.
Ahh, I love Saturdays. Oh, and the Zoo. And Mirah. And Karl. And Nitsy and the Boys. And Zuppas.
