Nashville Zoo

This weekend I was in charge of the plans. So I decided that we would make a trip to our local zoo. We decided to buy a membership this year becasue if you just go twice, you pay for the membership. So we will be spending a lot of time at the zoo this summer...that is the plan anyways.

I am trying not to compare things in Colorado with things in Tennessee...but I do have to say that the Denver zoo is a LOT bigger and much better than the Nashville one. There are not a whole lot of animals to see. There are not any lions...but there are 2 tigers. There are not any hippos or rhinos or flamigos. The flamingos are coming this summer I guess...There are not any penguins, or polar bears...or even bears at all for that matter. No seals. There are not gorillas... just one exhibit on smaller monkeys. So with that all said I hope we still enjoy our season pass.

There is supposedly this REALLY cool jungle gym for the kids to play on at the zoo, but we did not make it to that this time. The kids were hot and tired and we decided to go another time...of course since we have our season pass.

So there are not many pictures from this the zoo trip...but here are a couple we took. Enjoy...
This is a meerkat. He was just hanging out. This is what Timon on Lion king is. this is us up inside a veiwing thing inside the meerkats habitat!
these are mccaws. They can live to be about 70 years old...in people years!!! so don't ever get one if you think it will die before you...couse it WON'T!And this is the kids looking at the giraffes!

I just got caught up with your blog. I'm so glad you are happy in Tennessee. You'll get used to the humidity eventually. Have fun. I hope to update my own blog soon. Thanks for the beautiful scrapbook. You know me so well.
