Kenzley's First Grade Field Trip

This year Kenzley's class went to Hogle Zoo for their first field trip and Mike and I were both able to go. I thought it would be fun to take Skyeley along with us and luckily this year we had Kenzley and one of her friends in our group so it was really easy.

We started by seeing the giraffes and then stopped to get the classic head in the lion water fountain picture.

After we got done with that we went and saw some of the monkeys and then headed over to the elephants. We were able to see the baby elephant out playing while we were there.

We were able to see the rhinos right up close next to the glass and then we went to see if all 3 girls weighed as much as an elephant.

After we were done there we went and saw the eagles and played in the nest.

We stopped and ate lunch after we were done watching the sea lions, they were getting their tank cleaned while we were there by some scuba divers. After we were done with lunch we went and watched the polar bear swim. He swam right up to the glass and Skyeley didn't like it. She did enjoy watching him swim as long as he stayed away from the glass. When we were done seeing the bears we headed to the snake exhibit to see all the creepy, crawly, animals they had. Then we went to see the lions, tigers, and gorillas. Once we had seen all the animals, Mike decided to do the same thing he did last year and buy our group of kids tickets for the carousel.

After we dropped our one child from our group off to the bus, we headed out to lunch with Kenzley and Skyeley to Buca di Beppo. It was so yummy and the girls loved spending the day with us. I'm so glad that Mike and I both work for companies who allow to go and enjoy these exciting times with our kids.

The girls were able to draw a picture of Ramona the ravioli and have it displayed at the podium at Buca di Beppo. They both were so proud of their artwork, that we of course had to take a picture.
