Hogle Zoo

Zoo day was the only really nice day we had. Easter weekend wasn't bad but Monday as beautiful and the rest of the week during our stay it rained or threatened to do so. We were grateful we had at least one great day for the Zoo. The kids really got a kick out of the animals and my best friend Jessie got to come with us. We were so busy we only got to see friends for a couple of hours. We would plan to go back for more but then the week was over.
I was so pleased with the kids reactions and interest at the zoo. Lots of times we take our kids to do something and they just don't give me the reaction I was hoping for, well no let downs this time. Even Grady enjoyed himself and noticed the animals. I wish we could have got it on camera but a monkey was playing with Coy through the glass. Scared him bad the first time because he jumped right at him, but then Coy thought it was pretty neat and tried to encourage the monkey.

Hayden, of all things, was fascinated with the turtles. I don't know why but we had to drag him away from every one he saw. You can see his favorite turtles in pictures above. This was out second favorite place we went.
