A trip to the zoo

On the last warm day we had here, Emily, Ava and I went to the zoo. It's a smaller zoo only about 40 minutes from home. But it was perfect for Ava's first zoo visit. She loved the penguins.

And she tried to climb the fence to get in with the flamingos.

Here's Ava and Emily sitting on a giant bear. I think I want one for in my yard! lol

We rode this small train. Ava tolerated it but wasn't too impressed.

Somewhere I have a picture of this same caterpillar with Emily and her kindergarten classmates on it from about 15 years ago. I'll have to see if I can find it.

This is the best photo of the day of Ava. She backed up against this concrete wall and wanted her picture taken.

The last thing we did before we left was ride the merry-go-round. It was Ava's first time and she held on to me for dear life the whole time. But as soon as we got off she wanted to ride again. So back we went but the second time she sat on a seat with me instead of on one of the animals and she seemed to like that a lot better. Next summer we'll be going to the big zoo where she can see elephants and giraffes and all the cool big animals.
