August Outings

During August we finally made it to the zoo during the light of day, and the girls loooooved seeing all the animals.  We went at a great time when there were a lot of babies around, too.  They had a whole pride of lions that the girls were fascinated by.
The monkeys and apes were a hit, and they also had young ones inside the monkey house.

 And, of course, the main attraction, the pandas! We got to see the baby panda as well, and it was an adorable ball of fluff.

 Alexa always loves the elephants, and she thought it was so cool that this was a mother/daughter pair.
 Kaelyn fell asleep almost as soon as we got to the car, and Alexa barely managed to stay awake til we got home.
 On a different day we went to the local Truck Day, which was not a hit.  It only had a few trucks and the only thing that interested them at all was watching a back hoe, dump truck and cherry picker that were actually being used as a demonstration.  So, we were only there for about half an hour and then headed to the farm where these old tractors were a huge hit.

 Alexa has gotten much braver around animals and enjoyed petting the sheep, although Kaelyn wanted nothing to do with it.
 She did, however, enjoy mooing at the cows!
 We also hit the farm at a good time.  There was this litter of piglets, and then an even younger litter that we got to see feeding.  Alexa thought they were pretty cool, although she was not impressed with the smell, especially when she found out why it smelled so bad!
