Opening Day!

We always try to attend opening day festivities
at our local children's zoo!
This year it opened earlier than ever!
The weather was perfect as if there had been
some cosmic agreement made
ahead of time
for warmish and sunny temps on the first day the
zoo was open for the new year!

We really love our zoo!
It's not the biggest in the state, doesn't have the
most popular animals, and no fancy-pants aquarium,
but it's pretty much perfect anyway.

The horses weren't out yet because they went away
for the winter. Not really a fan anyway, since
they bit and pushed Maddy around last summer!

I usually subscribe to Jim Stafford's song lyrics -
"I don't like spiders and snakes"
but this spider was so sweet and fluffy --
Mr. Tarantula!

The camels were having a field day with yummy
treats from zoo visitors.  One lady almost gave
them a real delicacy -- her finger!
Read the signs - lady -- do not feed the camels by hand!!!!

The Gibbon a/k/a Howler Monkey about scared me to death
when he came out and smacked the window right in
front of me!  
And then he laughed!  

Opening day requires a ride on the train 
and screaming through the tunnel -- a tradition here!
Such a fun time -- we'll be back again for
Breakfast with the Easter Bunny later this month!

What a fun day at the zoo! I agree - our zoo rocks even though it doesn't have anything fancy! We always have a great time there!
