Our Field Trip to the Zoo

We had a great time at the zoo last week. It was a hot day, but worth it. Bailey's and Parker's favorite part were the Lorakeet birds. We fed them and they got right on our hands while they ate. So exciting! Asher loved it ALL, Ana loved feeding the Sting Rays. Always a favorite of hers. We did that last and she had a hard time waiting to get to see them. She survived and it was worth it. A man that worked with the sting rays gave us sting ray teeth, very interesting! Cecilia absolutely loved feeding the giraffes. Everytime it's long tongue touched her she would giggle so loud and just squeal with delight. My heart beats so fast with joy when I see my kids get so excited over things. Truly a fantastic day! A ton of fun, right along with a ton of learning. Each child was given an age appropriate "Zoo Scavenger Hunt." They had to find what was on the list and then write or draw what they found. It ranged from something stripped, from Africa, or cold-blodded, etc.... Very cool, they all did great searching and writing.
The water park was important to our hot day at the zoo. The kids loved being able to cool off in the water and then move on to the next place.
