So Sunday after the family reunion we headed to the zoo with our cousins, Graham, Carla and their two girls!!
There are so many sights to see at the Calgary Zoo, the newest exhibit is the Penguin exhibit. Unfortunately, they closed down the Australia Exhibit (back in 2010) and that made me sad. I didn't exactly like the Australia exhibit, it was never my favorite but the kangaroos were neat and some of those night creatures were creepily intriguing. Our first stop at the Zoo was the Penguins, it's right when you come in, so it makes it easy!!
Those lil penguins are so darn cute. The little tuxedo wearing acrobats! The rock hoppers are my favourite!! One poor little penguin was moulting, and he was still in his winter feathers and they just didnt' seem to want to come off so he kept pacing around and around, not standing still like his brethren.
The zoo had posted that giraffes weren't around the day we went to visit, but I guess that was a mistake because we saw both giraffes in their area, I really do think they are very graceful looking creatures.
We finished off the zoo with a family trip through the prehistoric park, our cousins left early, so we spent the next thirty minutes wandering through the dinosaur display. We took some pictures and then it was time to leave. Lil man was so good for his first trip to the zoo, and his brother was such a great big brother and so accommodating. I am very proud of my two boys!!!
