To the zoo with preschoolers!

Thursday I went to the Amarillo Zoo with twelve preschoolers.  OK, not me by myself!  With Zane’s school group.  They were all VERY well behaved.  The animals were up and moving and viewable for the most part.  It started out a very cool morning but no wind. 

Here we are waiting to go in when the zoo opens.  It was busy there.  Lots of school groups!04-28-11 Zoo 001 First stop was the lizard/snake house - Herpetarium.     Indoors and warm. 04-28-11 Zoo 00604-28-11 Zoo 00704-28-11 Zoo 00804-28-11 Zoo 00904-28-11 Zoo 01004-28-11 Zoo 012Next we stopped to see the buffalo, elk, and pronghorn antelope.  We were really lucky as they were right by the pavilion.  You could almost touch them!04-28-11 iphone Zoo 05 04-28-11 Zoo 018 04-28-11 Zoo 01304-28-11 Zoo 014  Watching the monkeys…04-28-11 Zoo 02004-28-11 Zoo 02404-28-11 Zoo 027 Lemurs…04-28-11 Zoo 029 Wish the peacock would have spread his feathers.04-28-11 Zoo 031 04-28-11 Zoo 033 Mrs. Amanda and her daughter04-28-11 Zoo 034 04-28-11 Zoo 035 04-28-11 Zoo 036 Lions and04-28-11 Zoo 037 Tigers and04-28-11 Zoo 039 04-28-11 Zoo 041 And leopards… Bears are later. 04-28-11 Zoo 043 The wallabies…and Zane and Leo04-28-11 Zoo 045 A serval.  Yes, I thought for the longest it was an ocelot.04-28-11 Zoo 047 04-28-11 Zoo 048 04-28-11 Zoo 051 Potty break.04-28-11 Zoo 060Smart teachers brought water, snacks AND blankets! 04-28-11 Zoo 06304-28-11 Zoo 066 Then we lined up to go to the playground.04-28-11 Zoo 067 And passed by the bears – finally out for us to see.04-28-11 Zoo 069 04-28-11 Zoo 070    Had to grab a quick group photo.  You can barely see the ones behind the sign.  Hmmm, poor planning.  04-28-11 Zoo 075 And then they played out a lot of energy on the playground.04-28-11 Zoo 078 04-28-11 Zoo 082 04-28-11 Zoo 085 04-28-11 Zoo 088 04-28-11 Zoo 090 04-28-11 Zoo 093 04-28-11 Zoo 095 04-28-11 Zoo 096 04-28-11 Zoo 099 04-28-11 Zoo 103 04-28-11 Zoo 105 So much fun!!
