What beautiful weather we are having this week!! Yesterday was a perfect day to go to the zoo!
When we asked the boys what their favorite part of the day was, they said the elephants! Luke kept saying "that elephant was dirty. He got a bath!"
We got to watch them clean "Tara" the elephant and she did some tricks for us too. Who knew elephants could do tricks!!
My favorite part of the day was the new Parakeet Exhibit they have. They have an enclosed area with hundreds of parakeets flying around.
The boys were mesmerized watching all of the birds fly around!
You can buy a "stick of food" for $1 and the birds will land on the stick and peck off the food and peck your fingers a little too!
That poor zoo keeper was ready for us to leave this exhibit. We had 3 2-year olds in there trying to chase a bunch of parakeets around while Corrie and I are chasing them around saying "BE GENTLE!!"
Of course no zoo visit is complete without riding the carousel and riding the train!
