Before heading to the zoo, we decided to try out Spangles for lunch. We. Loved. It! It's a chain, but they are decorated in a retro, diner feel and the food was cheap and Amazing! New favorite!
The kids loved the food!
Included in each kid's meal was a huge, Oreo ice cream sandwich!
Now to the zoo...
Playing peek a boo with Riah
She and Keenan checking each other out
Not sure what these are, but they were in a cool party where we could walk in with the animals!
Giraffes of all sizes!
The baby one
Check out that tongue!
Wraps it around a branch..
Pulls it down...
...and grabs it!
Giraffe photo bomb =)
This is why oral hygiene is so important, kids =)
Pretty painted dog
...and her snoozing hubby
(maybe next time we'll catch him up and about)
Love the Meerkats!
I don't remember what this was called
This makes me think of Lucy and Aslan!
All three on the lion
Love this one
(This reminds me... the kids and I got to see a production of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe at our local theatre last week!) It had a cast of... Five! Totally amazing!
I always think they look so wise
We saw this snake slithering in the zoo (he was not a resident)
...and a little while later, he went right across the path!!
..and my all time favorites... the Tigers! Unlike the sleepy lions, the tigers gave us quite a show!
On the move in the gorgeous habitat
Coming around the corner to show off for the spectators
Tiger cubs in a separate enclosure race out to check out the surprise that had been hung for them
Look how huge his paws are! =)
That's some big kitten
I love that Caleb was watching the Tigers, wearing his Tigers shirt!
What are you lookin' at?
This was the only shot I got of the Red Panda (fast asleep in his burrow)
The kids got to see the penguins swimming, close up
Tuckered out little girl =)
Come visit us in Wichita and go to the zoo! =)
