Family Zoo trip

The girls and I are able to go to the zoo several times in the Fall and Spring, but it's a special treat when we make time on the weekend for Daddy to come along.  Since we'd been having such a mild January, we set off one Saturday morning.  It ended up being a bit overcast and drizzly, but we explored all our favorite indoor places after hitting the outside highlights.

Daddy is always such a kid at heart, so he made his way into the fish tunnel.  Getting in was easy, but coming out gracefully was another story.

Finally!!  We caught the elephants getting a bath.  This section has been under renovations for awhile, so it's been a long time since we've enjoyed this treat.  The girls had a really long attention span for watching the process.

And of course, we rode the carousel.  Caroline has overcome her fear of the ones that go up and down.  And since Daddy was along, we let the girls split up and pick their animals.
