We’re going bananas!

My sister-in-law came in town this weekend with her kids. We took them to Zoo Atlanta (www.zooatlanta.org) on Sunday morning. It was chilly, but the animals were active, making the experience much better for the kids.

First stop: Simba, the lion.

He was perfectly perched on the rocks and roaring up a storm. Everyone in the zoo dashed over to see him. Cousin and little mister were particularly enamored with Simba, or, maybe with each other.

Next stop: Gorillas.

Youngest cousin was his cute, charming self and oldest cousin, self-proclaimed picture hater, even let his dear Aunt get a photo of him.

We ran around the zoo for a while longer and saw the leopard and tiger. On our way out, the zoo was flying an owl. We had to stand back – the owl was looking a bit irritated – but we were able to see him fly. It was pretty cool.

We checked out the Naked Mole Rats, then the kids played on the playground for a bit.

Lunch out at Six Feet Under was the perfect ending to our day.  The kids were exhausted, and exhilarated. We all had a blast!
