On Friday we went to check out the Phoenix Zoo. It seemed that lots of kids had the day off since it was Good Friday, so the Zoo was pretty crowded when we first got there. We had lots of fun seeing different animals, although some of them were pretty reclusive, possibly because it was a warmer day.
We borrowed a stroller from Julia’s Aunt Cindy, which meant that Emmy and Kaylee got to share a seat, walk around the zoo, or ride on my shoulders. Our favorite animals were the tiger, giraffes, and zebras.
I was surprised that Emmy and Kaylee didn’t get too scared when the tiger roared close by, which was pretty cool. He was one of the first animals we saw walking around very much. After that we went to feed the giraffes since they are one of Emmy’s favorite animals, but the girls were a little too scared to do that so they watched as I fed her a lettuce leaf and some other food. The giraffe’s had an African name for eyelash because she had huge eyelashes! It must take her forever to put on mascara in the mornings.
Kaylee’s favorite was the zebra – she kept asking to see them and we finally did right before we left. Julia noted that zebras were a lot bigger than horses. The girls thought it was hilarious that they got to see a zebra relieve herself right in front of us. Good to know that we have such refined children. After the zebras we checked out the carousel and got a nice big soda to drink. We’re definitely not used to Arizona heat, and this was only April!
