Bright and early Friday morning (May 29), we set off from Henderson to Memphis to visit the zoo. Becky was taking Carter, Laura Beth, and Cecily, and she asked us if we wanted to come along, so Daniel, Katy, and I went along. We had a wonderful day. The zoo was not too crowded, and the weather was wonderful. We loved seeing the lions, tigers, elephants, and of course, the pandas. For some reason the boys (and LB) wanted to visit the snake house all day, so right before we left, we saw all the slithery and slimy snakes. A polar bear swam right up to the glass where the kids were standing, and thy loved that! We were also entertained by some monkeys. We enjoyed a lesson about giraffes from one of the zookeepers.
One of the favorite parts of the day was visiting the birds. We were able to buy little sticks with seeds on them to feed the birds with. After a few minutes everyone was able to "catch" some birds to feed. Of course, I loved all the flowers that were in the birdhouse. After feeding the birds, we washed up, and enjoyed our picnic lunch. After a going-home trip to Sonic for drinks, we all agreed that we had a wonderful day with friends. Katy and Daniel love to do things with Laura Beth and Carter, and we all had a great time with Cecily. She was so much fun!!!
