It was such a beautiful weekend here in Alabama that I definitely wanted to spend our days outside. Yesterday we did just that by going to the Birmingham Zoo. Since it was MLK Jr. Day, we got half off the entrance fee by bringing a canned good. Easy!! Such a great way to save money. We arrived at the zoo around 1 and the kids were definitely ready to see all the animals.
One reason I love this zoo so much is that there are big animals too. A zoo we often visited in California had a few larger animals but mostly small animals like monkeys. We got to see lions, tigers, a gorilla, rhinos, a hippo, elephants, giraffes, zebras and more. It was awesome!! The kids had an amazing time and so did we!
Madison loved the tiger and kept saying "kitty, meow!" It was probably the cutest thing I have ever seen.
Family photo on the train! We got both kids to look and Uncle Ethan in the back couldn't manage to get his eye to the camera. Figures!
The double jogger was perfect!
Birds bigger than them!
The sea lions were probably their favorite. There were two of them and they were having a great time playing. Swimming all around, making noises, jumping up on the sides. The kids thought they were hilarious!
I really would like to get a membership to the zoo. Its $120 for a family of 4 for a whole year. Thats not too shabby and then I could take the kids all the time. Hopefully we will be able to get that membership soon.
