I decided to take a day off in April when we actually had some nice weather. I took the girls to the zoo for the first time this year. We haven't been since October. My mom was able to go with us. It was a beautiful day for it.
There wasn't that many people there since we went in the late afternoon during the week. Addie enjoyed really getting to see some animals up-close without any crowds. Here she is posing with the gorillas.
Kate loves animals! Well, I guess apparently only on tv, in books or from afar. The poor girl was terrified most of the day with any large animals: elephants (even from very far away), gorillas, bears, etc. She did however love the fish. Ha! Baby steps. I actually think this is the age when Addie was scared at the zoo. She was scared of a small turtle swimming one time. I suppose we need to make good use of our membership this year so Kate can warm up to the large animals. Ha!
