Today, Elijah and I had a fun trip down to the Baton Rouge Zoo! We went with Calley and her children, as well as some other ladies and their children whom are all part of a home school co-op group in our area.
We had a lot of fun today and I’m exhausted! Elijah actually stayed awake during almost the whole zoo adventure, only taking a 20 minute nap right towards the end! He seemed to really enjoy being out and about for a day!
This fella here decided to take off running when we were starting to walk up. I’m not sure if the golf cart that passed up maybe spooked him, or what, but it was crazy. Then it was as if he was posing for the camera!
The buffalo has always been one of my favorites… reminds me of the days when we used to play Oregon Trail in school… anyone else remember that?!
Oh the giraffe! This is one odd shaped, but very beautiful animal! They always seem to have such a gentleness to them, no matter what’s going on. Definitely my top 3 to see at the zoo!
She came right on over to us and started eating the grass on OUR side of her barrier… guess the grass really IS greener on the other side! 😉
At the end of the day, Elijah and I were both full of smiles and laughs!
I didn’t really pull my camera out until we were already halfway through the zoo and then I struggled to remember to take pictures! Next time I go, I will have to take more! I guess I was really soaking up my time out of the house, too. It’s not often that I get to go “play” so I made sure to take in every moment of it! =)
