We visited the zoo this past Friday with some new and old homeschool friends. We had a blast!
Monkey is fascinated with alligators, but this albino one at the zoo had him a little frightened. This is as close as he would get to let me take a picture.
The girls and some of our best friends!
Monkey made new friends with some sweet boys. I’m glad he’s not so outnumbered with all the girls anymore!
Monkey and Miss Elizabeth Bennett
Chipette and Miss Jane Bennett: Best Friends
The zoo crew being silly after eating lunch.
The new African exhibit was open on this trip and some of the group got in touch with their tribal roots!
Chipette made a love connection with this chimpanzee. She sat down next to the glass and the chimp began to kiss at her through the glass. Chipette kissed back and for the next five minutes they swapped kisses back and forth. Quite a crowd gathered around them because it was so funny!
The nature center at the zoo had this alligator head on display. Monkey wasn’t afraid to touch it!
Before heading home I let the kids have a quick visit to the splash pad at the zoo. It was hot that day, and they had earned it!
Loving our new zoo crew in the tree house,
