So, off we went to catch the zoo shuttle on a Sunday morning. (We decided it would be okay to worship that morning by thanking God for all his incredible animals. And they are pretty cool!) Here is a picture of our shuttle ride to the zoo gate. The outside was painted like a zebra.
It was pretty adorable to see Ella in a seat belt. Not her usual style.
The seals! I think here she was actually looking at the animals, but for the most part she was much more amused by all the kids that were there. She's a people person!
Sparky! I remember watching Sparky shows with my sister, Becky, when we were little. And eating bomb pops, those fun red, white & blue popsicles. Oh, good memories.
These were fun exhibits since Ella was able to get a little closer to the animals. Her first glimpse of a zebra.
It was a perfect day to visit the zoo. We ended up being really glad that we went right away in the morning because by the time we left at 1pm, the zoo was completely packed. Instead of fighting crowds, we all went home and took lovely naps. Ahhh.
Today we're heading to Central Minnesota to celebrate the holiday with my mom's family. Pete will be working all weekend, including having his first on-call shift as a resident.
Happy 4th of July!
