Minnesota Zoo

I had another fun day today with my friend Bri and kiddos Harper (3 1/2) and Declan (2 1/2).  We went to the Minnesota Zoo and spent the whole day checking out all of the animals!

Our first stop was the aquarium, and the kids were amazed at all of the fish!

I was not so much a fan of the various sharks that were there…

They rode the carousel (which is fairly new there) and both had HUGE smiles on their faces every time they went around.  The carousel had some really neat animals including a grasshopper, baby seals, and a giraffe!

One of the highlights of the day was feeding the goats at the Farm area.  At first, the kids weren’t too sure about getting up close to the over-eager goats.

This quickly changed!

And their smiles and squeals were priceless!

Dex LOVED them

I think that white goat ate 90% of their food…he must have been hungry!

The baby goats were my favorite…they were SO cute!

Look at Harper’s smile!

Leopard

One of the bears was swimming and it was so neat to see him right up against the glass

It was so fun to spend the day with these 3…since they moved a year ago and now live about 30 minutes away from us we don’t see them nearly as much as we used to or as much as I would like!
