The Lions Say "Roar"!

Last Friday I took the kids to the zoo along with my Sister-in-Law, niece, and nephew. The kids had been asking to go, so it was great timing that Molly suggested it for a get together!

We got there right around when it opened and waited for them to arrive. The girls liked watching the rhino break apart a stick.
Once they arrived, we were off to see the animals!  I didn't get a ton of pictures this time, but we all had a lot of fun. It was pretty crowded that day (the parking lot was crazy!), but didn't seem all that bad once inside. We worked our way back to the safari area....

and we stopped there to have lunch. After lunch, we saw the lions and the kids played on the safari bus for a very long time. Then we found the baboons and were cracking up at them sleeping. They were all in funny spots and funny positions totally passed out!
Yes, he's asleep!
We saw the elephants and then the kids played in the sandbox for awhile. After that, we started the trek to the front of the zoo to try and get them headed out! Of course that meant stopping at the playground for a half hour (which was crazy busy) before I could drag them out. On our way to the car, Avery asked if I wold take her picture with the meerkats!
And ever since our visit, Cassie will say, "The lions say "Roar" and the elephants go (insert elephant sound here)." It's so funny!
