Denver Zoo

The kids had fun waking up in the hotel this morning. After breakfast and Ethan's morning nap we got ready to go to the Denver zoo. Both beds had 4 huge fluffy pillows on them. I put them all on one bed and had fun throwing Ethan into them.

Ethan would just roll around the pillows, it was so cute.

The moment after I threw Ethan into the pillows...

Evie was on the other bed playing Rapunzel, pretending her blanket was her long hair.

Ethan after being tosseled a few dozen times

Joel trying to get a few last minute e-mails done before we go

And arriving to our first trip to the Denver zoo. The kids had a great time!

Ethan, chilling with Mr. polar bear

Taking a snack break; Joel trying to sneak a bite of Evie's corn dog while she was being playful.

Ethan happily shoved his in Joel's mouth

Ethan sizing up this crazy million year old looking turtle

Evie and Daddy looking at the crocodile. Ethan moving fast, as usual.

We just happened to catch this lady feeding the seals. A minute sooner or later and we would have missed it. She did it so quickly.

Okapi, a relative to the giraffe. They have stripes like a zebra. They live deep in the rainforest's...but somehow they survive in the Denver zoo...

Joel's favorite animal, the warthog.

Ethan hanging with the elephants...actually just a cardboard cutout of one displaying the new Asian elephant area to be built next year.

Evie was on the look out for all the animals in the movie Madagascar. She would see the Lions and say 'there's Alex', etc. Here she is happy to have found 'Gloria', the hippo.

And... a tired mommy as we leave the zoo. We're off to the car and a 2 1/2 hour drive back to Sunshine Ranch.

  1. So, is a zebra white with black stripes or black with white stripes?
