Have You Seen Any Giraffe's Lately?

We had a great time at the OKC Zoo today....there were lots of new exhibits. They had a place dedicated just to the wildlife of Oklahoma.

Sloan loved seeing all the animals and the hippo's swimming were one of his favorites.

Uncle JJ and Sloan found lots of different birds to look at.

When you get tired all you have to do is find you a resting rock!

He loved seeing the bears too!

There's nothing like sharing a snowcone with PaPa.

Aunt Jenn was busy taking lots of pictures but her and Sloan took a moment to visit the Apes.

Alligators were dozing in the warm afternoon sunshine.

A new grizzly bear exhibit had lots of waterfalls and huge wading areas.

Most of the day this little one was content with walking and looking at everything.

We finally got him in the stroller and then he wanted his socks and shoes off. Yes, it's confirmed....stinky feet!

He was sure tuckered out after we stopped for supper. You may be wondering why his Mom and Dad weren't in any of the pictures. They were attending a wedding today so I'm sure they will be anxious to see all the pictures and here about all the animals.

If you haven't visited your local zoo in awhile you should soon. It makes for some good exercise and you'll see some wonderful animals.

Happy Trails....Ginger

There is nothing like going to the zoo with kids, sure miss those days. What a fun day you had. I just saw your new pumpkin piece, what a neat pattern and love the colors in it.

Ginger, Looks like the zoo was a big hit with Sloan and family. I am going to have to go now...looks like a lot of new things to see and what great exercise. Have a great rest of the weekend.

Ginger, excellent pictures! Thanks for sharing. I can honestly say I have been to the zoo in a very long time. Sloan sure had a full day! Why not give him a crayon and paper and have him draw his favorite animal. Then you could hook it!

The look of AYE and WONDER in Sloan's face is priceless! It seems as if you all had a most joyous time! :)

That sweet little guy obviously had a great time at the zoo and I'm sure grandma and grandpa did too. Glad you get lots of pictures.

Sloan looked like he was having a great time. How neat that you got to experience it all with him.
