"Zoo" of sorts




















The girls and I spent some time at a local zoo (of sorts). It is kind of like a zoo, it has animals and a few rides and beautiful gardens to walk through. Though it doesn't have all the categories of animals, just a select few. We enjoyed "local" animals on this particular day.
















We have been studying turtles and reading Minn of the Mississippi. We were thrilled to see some examples of snapping turtles and marveled at the tortoises
too.








Sometimes it is just nice to be outside and enjoying nature and taking advantage of the spring weather. I find that our learning comes alive when we can see it, touch it, explore it. Much more than just reading about it, or writing about it or drawing it.








(Sorry about the excessive pictures...this is almost like a scrapbook for our family.)

This looks like a fun place to visit. Glad it isn't too far from your house? Tally really does look like you with your matching glasses. Our boys loves seeing the aligators - crocs while in Florida. Wish you could print all these blogs and put them in a scrapbook, huh?

Are you making fun of our little zoo, LOL? Sadly, Disney and Sea World have the best "zoo" experiences to offer and they cost an arm and a leg to get in. I've always thought it was a shame that Orlando does not have a better zoo. We had passes one year and visited many other zoos around the south-it really makes you see what we are missing.

I like to go to the zoo and see the chimpanzes.
