We were late getting there, the kids stayed up too late the night before and boy were they grumpy!
But, we got to see stuff we hadn't seen before because we were always past when it happened. They got to feed this tame bird (you'll have to wait for the 3rd picture to see it ). And they held a cup with food in it for the bird to eat.
Isis (she was too quick and I didn't get a good picture of her).
Connell, and now you can see the bird. Only four kids got to feed the bird, and my crew made sure they were picked.
The lions were out. I could have gotten a really nice picture from across in front of him if we had brought the big telephoto. Grandpa didn't bring it because he didn't want to have to haul it around. (Likely excuse, I had the wagon which he pulled):
The moose. I like how at our zoo, there are places where you can take pictures without the fencing getting in the way.
The beaver was out this time. Well actually in a hollow log, but out enough. Here he is sitting on his tail.
Now, these two following pictures I took today. We have had a really wet August here, and I have a bumper crop of toadstools! I found these under the tree in the side yard. Don't look too impressive?
Here they are with Clyde's hand on one of them. They are literally dinner plate sized!
And all that grass? It's been a month since I've mowed because of all the rain. Thought it would have dried out from the rain last night by now. But no, it's still too wet! When did that ever happen in Colorado before?
