First Day of Spring

Friday we were going to go with a new playgroup to Powder Valley, but when I found out my mom didn't have to work, we decided to hang out with her. She rarely gets days off during the week. It was the perfect day to go to the Zoo. It was probably the most crowded I have seen it, but it was still a lot of fun.
We went to see the penguins first.
Then rode the Carousel. Kaitlynn did really well on the Carousel sitting on the bench. I felt like I was going to get sick from it and couldn't wait for it to stop.
Watching / feeding the ducks.
Riding on the train. Kaitlynn liked waving to people as we passed them.
Such a big girl - carrying her purse.
I think this was one of her favorite animals of the day.
She likes to "hike" through the gardens.
Posing for pictures. I don't know why she likes to pose in front of trash cans, but she does.
Standing in front of a new exhibit coming in May. It will be Caribbean Cove where you can pet sting rays.
Posing / playing with her baby. She brings this doll everywhere.
Of course, a visit to the Zoo wouldn't be complete without a picture of the tiger cubs.
Amur leopard
Kaitlynn and MawMaw
Giraffe family - complete with a daddy, mommy and 3 kids (and an ostrich).
Looking at the donkeys (Somalia Wild Ass). They were one of her favorites, too. She was mad that she couldn't get in there with them.
Having fun

We ate lunch at the Zoo and shopped in the gift shop. What a great day!!
We were going to meet Dave and one of our playgroups at the Magic House that night (because it was free to get in), but Dave wasn't able to meet us there. Plus we were having fun with MawMaw, so we went shopping.
We were trying to find some sandals for Kaitlynn, but didn't have any luck. We had dinner and then went home.
