Zoo trip 2012

We were glad to be able to get in a trip to the zoo with Bentley and Bailey before baby number 3 arrives! I usually make it to the zoo about once a year and this past week was spring break so we decided to take advantage and go with cousins. Bentley loves animals, especially if he gets to interact with them. With that being said, his favorites were the petting zoo, the monkeys, and talking to a blue McCall bird. The monkeys happened to be playing around when we came by and one was hitting the glass with a palm branch, so the kids thought this was funny. Bailey was a trooper and stayed up through nap time but she wasn't to impressed. She did love running around when we got her out of the stroller, but she didn't really care for seeing the animals. We got to see the Tiger, Lion, Giraffe, rhino, wolf, cheetah, and many more neat animals. I am nine months pregnant and reluctantly
allowed Jon to talk me into renting and riding an electric cart around the whole park. I was embarrassed at first but once we got going I quickly realized I couldn't have made it one stop without the cart! It was also a hot day for March so that didn't help. We had a great day nonetheless and enjoyed spending time together. My mom, Heidi, and Collin came along with Amber and her four boys. Bentley had fun running around with his cousins, climbing rocks, and playing on the play area as well. Jon gave him a dollar to donate to the Blue McCall birds box and it was cute to see how excited he got to hand the bird the dollar bill. It snatched it with it's beak and then put it in the box. Bentley also tried to cut a bunch of kids in line at the camel rides. He just ran right up there and was about to hop on the camels back. It was so funny.
