A Day at the Zoo

A couple of weeks ago, to celebrate Matty's birthday and to get the heck out of the house, we took an impromptu trip to the zoo.

Tyler insisted on bringing his own camera along to ensure he got pictures of all of his favorite animals. I love looking through his camera. It's like a little peak inside his thoughts.

After making an initial stop to see the penguins {my favorite} we headed to the Tropics Trail. We checked out the turtles, monkeys, frogs and flamingos.

Matty was less than impressed and far more interested in what we packed for snack.

We cannot ever pass by this ugly fish without Tyler stopping to say hello. The fish attempts to bite anyone who knocks on the glass, which Tyler finds hilarious. I honestly cannot remember a time when that fish wasn't in that tank. I'm kind of impressed it's still hanging in there.

Next up was the Minnesota Trail. The trail runs outside and it happened to be freezing out {go figure} so I snapped one picture and quickly pushed the stroller through. Tyler's camera? Full of images of a coyote, wolf, bald eagle, wolverine and a fisher. Apparently he was dressed for the weather.

Last stop was Discovery Bay, which is much less exciting in the absence of the dolphins, but fun nonetheless. We touched a starfish and a stingray and took one last peek at the fish.

Then stopped for a quick face painting before heading home. Handsome guy.
