Miami Zoo

Today, we went to the Miami Zoo to see the lions, tigers, and bears (oh my!), as well as the gorillas, elephants, giraffes, camels, and pythons. We had a fun day, despite the fact that it was a little cool and overcast, but we beat the rain that started about 15 minutes after we got home this afternoon. And, it's probably better for it to be a little on the cool side, rather than on the hot and humid side.

So, perfect day for lots of pictures, right? Well, I had my camera, but...no camera battery. DOH! So, all of these were taken with my phone. The quality isn't great, but at least we got a few pics to remember Norah first trip to the zoo!

Here's Norah and Jerry in front of the orangutans: Norah and I petting a potbellied pig in the children's zoo:
Norah with the elephants:
And, lastly, Jerry and Norah with the camels:
Norah did so well at the zoo, and her favorite animal? The humans. Seriously, she was all about the people watching, especially those small humans -- fascinating creatures. My favorite? The giraffes. Oh, and the pygmy hippos. Jerry's favorite? The anaconda. Kidding, Jerry is terrified of snakes. His favorite were the gorillas.

Anyhoo...busy day! Now, it's pouring rain, I'm baking brownies, the Olympics are on, and we're all a little pooped.

Zoo trips are fun! Norah looks a bit more interested in the other visitors than the elephants in that one pic!

Love the zoo! We have one particular bear statue that we take a picture at EVERY TIME. It's great for watching the boys grow.

I'm with Jerry. Avoid the reptile houses at all costs.

Great zoo! We only have a small zoo here...no elephants or camels. My kids get excited for the bears. :)

Aw, great pics! Looks like a fun day and glad the rain held off for you.

Too funny that Norah is more interested in all the people.
