I took the girls and grand girls to the zoo once again this year. I am so glad Katie still wants to go, even though she is almost 14. I still like to go too! Since zoo food is majorly expensive, we stopped at Taco Bueno before we went in.
Anna was laughing so hard, telling me about a part of the book she is reading.
I love it that she really likes her books. She is a true Gilbert Morris Fan!Lillian played it safe this year on the carousel. She sat on the bench with me. :)
Last year, she was so funny. I took this video of her.
Here is Sarah waiting to go in and feed the birds. :)
This year, we did something knew. We fed birds in the bird exhibit. I was amazed that the zoo keeper knew each bird's name individually, and said he memorized them by their feather patterns. :)
Lillian was a little scared at first. After all, how often does a bird land on your head? LOL
But she pulled herself together and fed birds. :)
I think her favorite place was in this giant Dinosaur Egg. :)
Anna is a good bargainer. She stumped the information guy this year. He didn't know what kind of skull she brought, other than it was some type of bird skull. She then told him rather matter of factly that her MOTHER killed this bird, we buried it, and then she dug it up to bring to him. LOL
Of course his next question was quite appropriate, I thought..... "Did he taste good?" :)
