Zoo critters, part 1

It has been raining a lot lately.  But yesterday, the weather cooperated for the girls' first day of summer break.  A beautiful sunny, although a little chilly, day! Kansas is actually having a long spring this year!   Infact, today is another rainy day and I put on the heater!

We decided a trip to the zoo would be a good way to celebrate the start of summer vacation!  We drove to the Big City (as my farm friend calls it).  We forgot that Claire has not been there for probably a year (they live pretty far away) and she was fascinated with the overpasses!

I asked Claire what animal she would like to see at the zoo.  
A Kitty!!
They should have kitties at the American barn, don't you think? 
Al remembers squirting the milk into their kitties' mouths when he was growing up.

The first thing to see at the zoo are the fish.  We aren't able to feed them anymore because of the bird flu going around.  The food draws in too many fowl and they want to keep them away.
 Picking his nose with his tongue.  Yech.

Claire looked at her back and said "I don't have a bump on my back!"
 "Hello Baaa!"

She was singing "Baa baa black sheep"

 Even Claire tried it, but I didn't get a picture.

And of course we washed, washed, washed our hands!!  That E-coli scare is no laughing matter!

 "Painting" the barn - such a cute idea!

 Sophia was a little skittish of the dark bamboo forrest.

Hannah took some great pictures of the chimps.! 

 What fun to discover a baby orangatang!  Claire thought it was funny that he was doing the splits.

I do splits too!
