Buffalo Zoo

A week and a half ago we took the kids to the Buffalo Zoo. It was chilly when we got there, but by the time we left it warmed up quite a bit. Lily seems to get the whole zoo thing now. When I took the kids in Nov, it wasn't as much fun...remember here.

First signs of Spring...
Playing with pine cones. Lily wanted to pile all the pine cones up in one spot. Ian wanted to STOMP on them instead.In one of the polar bear exhibits they were shooting water toward the pool. This big chunk of ice looked really neat. My son thought it would be a cool water slide.While Jeff, Lily and myself were watching & taking pictures of the bear hang onto the tire....
My son was more enamored with the funny birds eating the poo. All my son kept saying was Mommy, please take a picture of the birds eating the poop. Ok, so I did....what does that say about me?My favorite exhibit (and my husbands) happened to be the new rain forest. It is beautiful and the did a fabulous job! These pictures were taken on a landing you can walk up to and look down. We spent a long time in this building looking and finding new animals around every corner. One of the favorite points in the Rain Forest was counting and finding all of the alligators. These are the pictures you get when you hand the digital camera to a 7yr old boy. Oh yes, I have deleted the ones of the ground and people we didn't know.
Have a happy Tuesday!!

How did your rain forest smell? I know sounds like a weird question. I was just wondering, the rain forest at our zoo smells quite bad. Ya know, from all the animals in the heat. Blech.
