The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium

Yesterday I went with the kids and there daycare to the zoo. The morning wasn't bad at all but the heat came on in the afternoon and made it a little uncomfortable. It was still an awesome trip and the kids had a blast. So here are a bunch of pictures taken throughout the day.

Emma and Ian waiting for everyone to pay so we could all go in. The babysitter purchased duck hats for all the kids to wear and Ian did have his on for a while but it seems I never captured a picture of him in it.

Emma and Ian at the Petting Zoo

All the kids and the sitter to. Every time we take a field trip we take a group shot and let me tell you they are so hard to do but it's always worth it.

These are the Moose. They brought on a conversation with all of us parents about what multiple Moose are called. Is it like Mouse and Mice or is Moose the singular and the plural??

Ian and his buddy Andrew

My two kids and a few others trying to see the Wolf who was hiding

These are the Bald Eagles and I took the picture for Dave because they are one of his favorite things to see at the zoo. They really are majestic birds.

One of the Elephants

The Tigers taking a morning nap

The kids and I on the cool Tiger statue

The Manatee

Emma petting a Snake. Ian wouldn't go near the thing, but Emma has no fear.

I don't remember what kind of Snake this one is but it followed your every move and hissed allot.

The big land Turtle and my favorite animal to see

Emma and her friend Mady enjoying there ring pops.

Some kind of Monkey showing off and probably the coolest shot I caught even with the fence in the way

Another Monkey, maybe Orangutan, eating an Orange for his afternoon snack. This was Ian's favorite animal of the day

The baby Gorilla. I wish this shot would have been better but the baby was really far away.

Ian enjoying some Dippin Dots. Oh we had to change his shirt because he got a hold of my pop and spilt it all over himself.

Emma eating her Dippin Dots. Can you tell we were in desperate need of something cool at this point.

Emma with her favorite animals, the Flamingos

Emma shortly after we got out of the parking lot.

Well there it is, out trip to the zoo.

I loved that big black monkey picture. I think he was flashing you his private parts ... you bring out the beast in him ;)
