I know this is my third post of the day, but I'm trying to catch up.
After our retake of family photos, we met our friends at the zoo because it was $1 admission all weekend. We are so lucky to have such a great group of friends and it's nice our kids all like each other!
I don't know if it was the fall weather or what, but the animals were putting on a show and so close to the fences. This is not a zoo. It's a sanctuary, so they only take in hurt or abandoned animals.
This was a black bear whose Mom was hit by a car and he would've been dead too since he was only a few months old.
These lynx are so cool. We've never seen them standing up and walking around before. They usually hide in a corner. Such a beautiful kitty.
The kids love playing at the playground.
Ben loved these little kangaroos. You can actually get in there and they will come up to you.
Here's the mountain lion, again, rarely out.
And how cute is this raccoon? Adorable!
And here's the bear again, showing off.
And an owl....
And a lizard on a leash...
It was a fun morning. Then, we grabbed frosty's and fries at Wendy's and ran to Walmart to grab Emily a clearance Halloween costume for next year. The boys have lots of stuff to dress up in. She picked a zombie prom queen. Fun!
The kids have a three day weekend next week for Veteran's Day, and we decided 3 days ago that we are taking them to Vegas! Yep, Vegas, baby!!!!!
