Monkeyin' Around...

I went to the zoo yesterday!!!! I took Kaylyn and Libby to John Ball and we had a blast!!! Here's some pictures...

The penguins.... we did see real penguins too! :) They were really funny to watch.

We were some of the last people to pet the pygmy goats before they closed up for the season!

The goats really liked us :) Kaylyn asked if one was pregnant because it was so fat, but the guy said that the ideal pygmy is as wide as it is tall!

The tiger was picky and didn't want it's picture taken, but we finally got a few good shots!

These gorillas were so fun to watch! Kaylyn put her hand up to the glass and the gorilla mimicked her and followed her hand with his. She took out a mirror but when he saw his reflection, he ran away!!!

I don't remember exactly what this guy is called, but he stuck his tongue out right when Kaylyn took the picture!

They got to pet a bearded dragon...and Libby touched a corn snake too!

The mountain lion didn't want Kaylyn to take his picture, but she was very patient and finally after a lot of calling (from her) and pacing (from him), he came right up to her!

The leopard is resting now, but seconds before, it lept across the rocks (in 2 leaps) to get to the other leopard and they had a fight!

"Yep, I'm king, and I know it, and don't you forget it!!"

We had to rest for a minute...and it was the perfect photo spot!

The pelicans. As we were leaving, we stopped to watch the flamingos (I forgot to take a picture). And Libby said "Isn't it cool how God made the flamingos to be able to stand on one leg?" Yes Libby, God is cool!!!


  1. You got some great pictures. I've heard it is better to visit a zoo when it is cooler as the animals are more active. It looks like the girls (and you) had a great time.

  2. Great pictures!! Looks like you had a great time!!

    Thanks so much for your help this morning!! I so appreciate it!!!

  3. Looks like fun! I love the pictures!

  4. What a great friend. The weather was great for a visit to the zoo.
    Just in case you ever want a repeat visit- Arianna and Halle are always up for a visit to the zoo-hee hee1!

  5. Melissa, you Rock! The girls had a blast! Thanks for not posting that one nasty picture. You just gotta love monkeys. :-P

  6. I love the zoo pics!!! Glad you had fun. BTW, we went shopping at Birch run and then Bronners Christmas store in Frankenmuth.

  7. Looks like so much fun!

    I think I would make a good pygmy goat! :) And if not, I would like one as a pet because they are adorable!
