A Zoo Day

Last year, we (meaning the 5 Fienes) went to the zoo with Debbie and Pam on Debbie's birthday.  I guess we are just going to make it a tradition because we (meaning 4 Fienes, one was lame and had to work) went to the zoo again.  We had a wonderful time.

 John and Sophie were ready to get going.  You can't keep these two still for too long.

The zoo has a new, cool bug exhibit.  The area is filled with huge bugs.  Gus was a little frightened by these big creatures. 

 If you read the sign, you'll see that this area had big stink bugs.  And that little red bottle is filled with the aroma of a stink bug.

 Gus was feeling adventurous...

He won't do that again anytime soon.

 The bug magnets were a hit.

 The four kids loved "catching" butterflies.

A trip to the zoo would not be complete without petting the stingrays.
 Gus was done in about 2.5 seconds, but I had to peel Sophie and John away after a good 20 minutes.

 Stingrays feel slimy...just in case you wanted to know.

There was also a new buffalo to check out.  I think this little guy was only 11 days old when we saw him.

It was a fun filled day.  After the zoo, Debbie and Pam took the boys back to their house and had dinner, cake, and ice cream.  You just can't beat that.
