We went to the Oklahoma City Zoo again last week.
We went last year also, it takes a year for me to forget how tiring it is.
That zoo is big…
The boys wanted to go straight to the Children’s Zoo.
Because they wanted to play in the water feature they have…
I let them cool off but made them move on pretty quickly.
I did not drive 1.5hrs for them to play in the water!
We could have done that a lot closer to home!
This time they got to hold the parakeets!
This was pretty amazing for them.
My oldest was not as sure as his brother…
Poor bird probably thought ,”why is this kid trying to drop me?”
The zoo keeper said I needed to hold one also so I handed off my camera to my oldest.
Then I did it again…
I am smiling big because he took several shots and then told us we need to get really close together.
I love it when he directs shots!
Here is where Wild Kratts has ruined my children.
Both boys were determined to stay here and stare at the Caracal until it jumped.
It jumps in Wild Kratts all the time so of course it will jump now…
Does it matter that Wild Kratts is a cartoon?
I told them it was hot and it had no reason to jump but they still thought we should wait.
It finally stretched and they thought for sure a jump was coming…
It laid back down and they both were like, “huh, I wonder why it is not jumping?”
I finally got them to leave the poor Caracal alone.
My youngest also thought a documentary on Sperm Wales would of course show a battle between them and a colossal squid(because it is in Wild Kratts).
He decided he wanted to watch the cartoon wale instead when he found out no battle was coming…
We just happened to make it to the Elephants right when they were doing a demonstration!
The boys were really enthralled by it.
I guess I should make more of an effort to hit up the demonstrations but I don’t like trying to be at a certain part of the zoo at a certain time!
The baby Elephant drinking out of the hose was so cute!
The boys decided to hitch a ride back to the entrance.
I don’t blame them…
