lions and tigers and bears...

Last week... Tuesday to be exact, Egan and I went to the zoo with my mom, dad, brother and his girlfriend for my dad's birthday. I love a good zoo, and Egan was truly a champ. Lots of pictures to follow from our fun day.
Check out this awesome flamingo! I think he/she was posing for me.

What do you think? Is it real?

Yes, it is, and I let my son get within striking range.

(There is a wall of glass in case you are wondering.)
I don't really have a lot of explanation for most of these pictures. Just, "I thought the animals were interesting."

Egan loved looking at the various animals and aquariums.

Did anyone else see the Planet Earth with these guys? SO COOL!

The penguins. Ugh, the penguins. They were STIIIINKY! We spent less than a minute in there.

Touching the various sea creatures.

Here's a fun one. We crawled through a tunnel and came up in this dome. There were little mice in there. Yuck! If you look carefully, you can see a mouse on the left side of the screen. This picture was taken of the screen outside the tunnel.

Phew, that's a lot of pictures and not a lot of commentating, but seeing as I am so far behind on this blog anyway... it is better than nothing!
