zoo day

After almost a full week of cloudy, damp, dreary weather, we were more than ready to spend a day outside. So we headed to the zoo (and too advantage of our membership one last time).

Delaney really liked looking at the animals. We would tell her the name of the animal. Then we would ask her where that animal was and she would point. And whenever the animals were sleeping, she would put her finger to her mouth and say “shhhh.” I’m telling you, this kid would be a perfect mime!

Meercats and Prairie Dogs. Can you tell them apart?

Delaney was “shhhh-ing” when she saw a sleeping animal.

And can you spot the ugly ducklings baby swans? The daddy is in the water and would scare off ducks that came near.

Poor chimpanzee had been shaved. I think he may die of embarrassment.

Check out the anteater. Not something you see everyday.

So we left the zoo after spending 4 hours walking around (along with every other person in the Wichita area) and less than $5. Not bad for a day’s entertainment!!
