After 2 years of living here we finally made it to the Virginia Zoo here. This was a really special trip, it was the first time the Littlest Man has been to the zoo. And the Curious Monkey hasn’t been since he was really little so I don’t know if he remembers it. He was so excited. It was a good thing I brought the camera. He kept running over to me, “Momma, you have to take a picture of this animal. And Momma take a picture of this one. And Momma hurry come here, take a picture.”
Curious Monkey grabbed me by the arm, telling me to come and take a picture, and ran me over to the termite mound, then made his brother pose with him.
The Little Sidekick loved watching the elephant. I think he could have sat all day and watched this one. It had an amazing calming effect on him.
My girls wanted to take this little fennec fox home. They thought it was so cute. In case you didn’t know a fennec fox is a small nocturnal fox that weighs about 1.5–3.5 lb and is between 9–16 in long. It is the smallest species of canid in the world.
The Karate Kid almost missed the field trip. He wasn’t so sure he wanted to go and refused to get out of the car leaving me in quite a bind. But he finally came around and decided he would give the zoo a try. And much to his surprise he love it.
Even though there is no evidence the Gymnast was with us on the trip but kept hiding from the camera. Don’t think she’ll get so lucky next time. We can’t wait to go back to the zoo again.
This week I’m linking up to Moments to Remember on Homeschool Creations.
