Going to the zoo, zoo, zoo

The first graders only took two field trips this year.
And Caroline missed the first one because she was sick.
So, she was SOOOO excited to go to the zoo with her school friends.
We had lots of parent chaperones,
so I was only in charge of a small group of 3:

J, T, and Caroline.
T is one of her closest friends this year,
so C was happy to spend the day with her.

We toured Africa first.
We saw lions (above)


 The kids wanted to take pics with every statue.

The chimpanzees were my favorite. 

This guy was more interactive than any animal I've ever seen.

 He would run along the glass and when he got to this worker,
she would jump up and down.
And he would mimic her.
And then run along the glass again.
It was so cute to watch.

Exploring between exhibits.


 Baboons usually creep me out.
But these ones were fun.


Dung beetle statue.
(Seriously? Do we need a picture with that guy??)

After a couple of hours in Africa,
we took a break for lunch.
Then headed to North America.


Polar Bear den
(The actual polar bear was hiding from view
somewhere in the far corners of his exhibit.)

In North America, they also have an awesome play area.
Our time was short and it looked so fun.
Instead of visiting more exhibits, we spent
the rest of our time playing here. Yes!
