Our first stop was feeding the ducks. It was a good thing I had a lot of quarters in my purse. Between the duck food, a soda, and smashed pennies (which you have to pay with quarters), it emptied my change pocket. Cruz wanted the front seat of the stroller. He enjoyed putting all his duck food in the cup holder and throwing them in the pond, one by one.....This was Kirsten's favorite, the pygmy goats in the children's petting zoo. They spent over a half hour in here just petting all the different goats. I took Cruz in but he wouldn't get down, let alone pet one of them. So we enjoyed them outside of the fence.The baby was the "funnest" to pet.
The kids infront of the lemurs. McKay's favorite were the monkey and apes. They had two white-haired apes that sat and played while we watched them.
Cruz sat and watched the Tiger for a long time. He didn't want to leave this exhibit.After two and a half hours of the zoo, we had seen it all (like I said it's the perfect size). Since it was free admission I let the kids pick out a stuffed animal. That and they were 40% off. They had to pay for half of it though. Katanya was all smiles in the car. She has really started to express herself.McKay picked a koala she named Koola Cola..........Kirsten picked a zebra she named Stripes......Cruz picked a lion.......He was exhausted.
