**WARNING: THIS POST IS OF INTEREST TO FAMILY ONLY. UNLESS YOU WANT TO HEAR ABOUT THE ZOO AND CLICK TO SEE PICTURES OF THE BOYS POSING LIKE THEY'RE GETTING PAID TO, PLEASE STOP READING NOW. REGULAR POSTS SHOULD RESUME SOON. (OR AT LEAST WHEN WE RETURN FROM VACATION.)**
The kids are in love. Bernie is a big hit. The boys help take him out and make sure he gets plenty of play in. Here they are on the first night here. (I was sleeping.)
Today we went to the zoo in the morning. First to the children's zoo. Here the boys are playing in some water spouts. They posed in a hippo for your viewing pleasure. My otters mugging it up. The last part of the children's zoo was the goats. Here the boys are brushing the goats.
After the children's zoo we visited the River's Edge. We saw Black Rhinos, Hippos swam by us, the Cheeta tried to hide but the Dwarf Mongoose were out to play. Here is my cobra crew. In front of the Insectarium my bug boys struck another pose. (The inside of the Insectarium was left for another day.) Before we left we checked out the bears and the penguin & puffin exhibit where Alex got splashed by a penguin. Boy was that cold! 45 degrees after the hot humid temps outside. Brrr!
"I am never going in there ever again!" said Zach. "It's too freezing."
We have a lot more ground to cover at the zoo but it was hot, we were hungry and it started to thunder. The plan is to go back to the JCC pool (forgot the cameras the last 2 days). Dylan insists it's not a pool but a water park. Will try to post pictures from that tomorrow.
