Saturday at the Zoo

Saturday was the Hogle Zoo day in Salt Lake City, Utah. We left fairly early in the morning, and it was quite chilly. However soon the warm sun came out, and we were shedding our sweaters and jackets. Spencer and Belle threw pennies and wishes in the fountain while Allen got our tickets.

Belle and Spencer really enjoyed the tropical bird exhibit, and especially the spoon billed flamingo...(I think that is what it was) It was beautiful, bright orange pink feathers, and they could fly, so several of them were in the trees.

I caught this fun picture of Belle when we stopped to rest by a wooden fence.

Rose was a really good baby, and never complained until the very end of our time at the zoo, and then she slept the whole way home!

This is Belle watching a cute furry rabbit, I loved this shot because I could see her reflection in the window.

When Rose didn't want to be in the stroller, Spencer was more than eager to hold Rose and show her all the animals.

When Spencer saw this he didn't think that it was that big, he said, "Oh I bet my arms are as long as the gorrillas", not quite sweety!

The whole time at the zoo Belle was wanting and begging to go on the train, then when we got on, she was scared to death. Even daddy could not convince her that she would not fall out!

This picture cracked me up.....(not because I cut off the top of Allens head), but the way they are standing! I don't think they did this on purpose. I think the peacock was Belles favorite animal.

You took some great pictures! We enjoyed the Hogle Zoo when we went there a few years back. Emily dropped her water bottle in the Gorilla's area. A Gorilla picked it up, tore the paper off, got the cap off, and drank the water. It was a hoot to watch, but shhh don't tell anyone!

What fun! I love the picture of Belle with her Dad standing by the fence. It's fun to watch kids imitate their parents without even knowing it.
