A day at the zoo!

Today we joined up with another DAM mommy, Tracey, and her little boy, Z, and headed to the zoo! We walked there for 3 hours but it was a perfect day for it. It was kinda cloudy, sunny towards the end, and a bit brisk but just right. The boys had such a fun time!!

Checking out the penguins

Then we hit up the gorillas, and got super lucky!!! The 3 females were in the viewing area, and were quite active! I wish I'd been able to get a picture of one of them running to hit the glass and startle people. It was pretty interesting to see. Usually the trainer goes in there with them at the same time we were there, but since one of the females had been trying to take the lead of the group lately, there had been lots more aggression, so the trainers joined us in the viewing area instead to answer questions.

Monkeybutt...lol

This is the 18year old female trying to take the lead from the 57 year old female...not happening, kiddo...
