The zoo was interesting but not near as good as the zoo in Oklahoma where we are all from. Graham was really disappointed there were not giraffes. He got excited at the cheetahs though, since his school mascot is a Cheetah.
You could get really close to the cheetah's through a "secret" path in the butterfly garden. (I really need to learn to use my camera better, I could only focus the plants not the cheetah)
This elephant was so funny because it kept standing with it's back legs crossed. I know this was the girl elephant also. You can see it a little in the picture.
The kids were getting so hot and tired by this time. I'm honestly not even sure what they are posing in front of since I can't see it.
We went through the "nature walk" and got bitten like crazy from mosquitoes but also saw a dinosaur. Molly looks like she is pretending to be scared or something with her mouth open.
The kids were so ready to cool off at the zoo's splash pad. It was pretty cool. They had different animals that shot water out of them and fake palm trees with water coming out. It was a great end to a very hot day.
Hannah, Abbie, Naomi, Rachel and some other girl. (I felt so bad for the other girl. Immediately after I took this picture she fell of the rhino and bumped her head)
This was by far Molly's favorite thing at the splash pad. When she first sat on the frog and the water stopped squirting she starting to get really upset. Once she realized it would come back on in a minute she was OK. She sat just like this for quite a while and would put her finger over the stream to make the water go everywhere.
