Zoo Trip 2009

We took a family trip to the Hogle Zoo on Memorial Day this year. It was Kyle's first time at the zoo, so we were really excited to see how he would like it. It was CRAZY busy (which we should have realized would happen, it being a holiday and all)! It took us 45 minutes to find a place to park.

By the time we got into the zoo, we were approaching the warmest part of the day. We missed seeing a lot of the animals (like ALL of the Asian Highlands cats, in fact) because so many of them were hiding away from the heat. But, we still got to see the monkeys, and the giraffes, and the elephants, and the penguins (Kyle really liked these), and lots of other things. We even got a glimpse of the fossa in the Madagascar exhibit. He was hiding out in a log, asleep. Fortunately for us, the log was right against the display glass, so we got an excellent look at him. What a weird looking animal...

The biggest hit of the day for Kyle, however, was the train ride. We ended up at the very back, which faces backwards, so we got a panoramic view from the train. Kyle also really enjoyed playing on the playground in discovery land.

We had a lot of fun! I think the next time we go to the zoo, we'll try to be there right when it opens, though. Maybe then more of the animals will be out.
