giraffes, gorillas and penguins!

My best friend Rossi gave me tickets from her City Pass to the Woodland Park Zoo. We HAD to go! Luckily, we both had Wednesday off before our vacation that we were able to go. I kind of think zoo’s are lame, mostly because all the animals are usually sleeping or not in site. But we actually got lucky with most of the animals! River Otters, we missed you! :(

I went on the website to see if they were having any good children's programs happening that day. The only thing that caught my eye was a giraffe feeding! I love giraffes. I collect them! I was a little nervous about Olivia being close to something so big, and getting scared. She was a little nervous, but she did great! There was even a smaller giraffe there with her name! :)

Olivia is just tall enough to see over the wall. It was fun to really see her take everything in. She even pointed out animals.

She loves the orangutan.

For a dollar! (really, do we always have to pay to do everything cool? Freakin’ zoo, you’re killin’ me!) you got a stick with some seeds on it. And you go into this bird area and the birdies hop onto your stick!

Um… lets put any kind of bird on my fear list. I hate them! They are so sketchy! Hence my face in the 3rd picture. bleeghhh!

The new penguin exhibit is gorgeous! So awesome to get to be even closer to the animals. They were very fun and loved being watched!

We had a blast! Olivia didn’t get a nap the WHOLE time but wasn’t whiney at all. We decided to eat lunch on the way home, we put Olivia in her seat, and with in 5 minutes on Aurora Ave, she was out!
