Going to the Zoo -Part 1-

My parents, grandparents, Aunt Diane and her two kids, Jimmy and Ericka, met us in Columbus, OH for a few days of fun.  What is in Columbus you ask?  Well, actually quite a bit.  The zoo was rated the #1 family zoo this year so we had to see what that was all about.

Before we took off for the zoo John wanted to dress like Jimmy.  So, he put on Jimmy's shoes, bracelets and hat and walked around the hotel saying, "Hi, I'm Jimmy."

Off to the zoo.  Gus was excited...can't you tell?

First stop was the petting zoo.  John was a little cautious, but decided to pet the goats after we assured him the goats would not eat him.

Gus wasn't shy and got right at their level.

He kept calling them doggies.  Everything is a dog to Gus.

The Columbus zoo recently opened its new polar bear exhibit.  It was very cool and worth the long walk to the exhibit.

You could see the polar bears from the top...

You saw a lot of people doing this.  I don't know who these people are...but they made for a great picture.

We spent a lot of time with the polar bears.  If you are ever near Columbus you should stop in and see the bears.  It was worth the admission price just to see them.
