Zoo Time

We had a field trip at the zoo for Oakley's preschool class last week. It was a perfect day for it too. Slightly overcast and cool weather. However, I am still shocked at the cost to get it. $41 for me and 4 kids to get in, ride the train, and carousel. And that was with one free child and a coupon for everyone.
Oakley's class
Paige, Oakley, Morgan, Oliver, and Oakley's friend, Caroline.

This metal elephant is always the kids favorite "animal."

But when asked what their favorite thing was, it was the "spinning thing" meaning, the carousel. And then the train of course. The kids did love running around and seeing all the animals. So, I guess I shouldn't complain about spending money.
I did come away from the zoo with a new fear though.
The Ostrich:
Maybe one of the creepiest looking animals around. I wouldn't want to come across one in a dark alley, thats for sure.

WOW! You are a better mom to Oliver in those 6 hours a day than I could ever be in a life time....I really think I owe you something life perhaps? I'm just saying...

I love the metal elephant and how it makes noise and spits water or air or whatever it spits. That's cool. I'm with you on the whole ostrich thing too.
