So this past Sunday, Mr. Thing and I took the girls to the Rosamond Gifford Zoo. We got there fairly early in the day, which you would have thought had been a good thing. Sadly, most of the animals were still sleeping or just getting up for their lunch. Out of all the animals, I was really excited for the girls to see the Elephants. This particular Zoo allows the Elephants to come close to the crowd, and we get a chance to touch the trunk. I was really hoping the girls would be able to experience this but the Elephants were both busy eating their lunch.
This photo is of Thing 1 in front of the meerkats. I had asked her if she could see them and she gave me this funny face. I guess she was trying to tell me, “Of course, I can see them silly!”
Here is Thing 1 again, she is trying to touch the Naked Mole Rats, who were also eating their lunch. I think the next time we go to the zoo it will be after 2pm when the animals are finished eating.
In this photo Thing 2 is looking up to me, while Thing 1 is peering in the tank trying to spot a penguin. I had my husband take the picture while I was baby wrangler. As you can see, no penguins! The penguins were nesting, apparently a few babies were born! 🙂 The girls really seemed to like the animals that were up close, so maybe an Aquarium would be a better place to visit next time. I think they would enjoy seeing the otters and fish swim around in their tank.
