For Kory's Birthday we took a much needed mini trip to the zoo. Mini meaning it was our family vacation for the year. Sad as that may sound to some, it was exactly what we all needed. We had a lot of fun!
Axel was much more into the animals this year than last year when when he was still a baby.
He LOVED the monkeys, and the monkey's and gorilla's did not disappoint this year. They were very alert and would go right up to the glass and such. Axel's FAVORITE part of the show was watching both young gorilla's go to the bathroom. He was pretty excited to see the "monkey poop".
However this statue monkey was NOT his friend.
Speaking of big scary gorilla's, they were cleaning the outdoor cages so the gorilla's were stuck inside for a bit. After awhile the big one got really frustrated and started to charge the door, and shake the gate and it was pretty scary, because we were right there. Everyone jumped back because it was so sudden.
Dani's favorite part I assume was the elephant. I think they moved slow enough and were big enough to catch her attention. She just laughed and giggled at them, and swooped her arms at them.
Some more monkeys
It's not the zoo with out a picture of our little family in front of these tigers. Go Here to see how much our family has grown in a little over a year!
It was IMPOSSIBLE to get a picture of these two looking at the camera. Believe it or not Kory was the more cooperative one!
And of course to see how we measure up next to a gorilla!
