|Alyssa's group took time out for lunch and we joined them.|
They had a whole list of things they had to find and do--kind of like a scavenger hunt. When they got back to school the next day they had to write reports on their findings. Kim was assigned to take pictures to document all of it for their group. It sounded like a great idea and worked very well so the kids weren't racing around looking at their favorite things and not noticing anything else.
I also took some pictures. I have done a lot of zoos in my day so usually don't take pictures since they all look the same it seems like but here are a few of what I took the day we went there.
|Alyssa's school mascot is an alligator so, of course one of the things on their list was this big guy!|
|Flamingos are always fun to watch.|
|Feeding time for these young flamingos.|
|Nap time in the warm sunshine!|
|Bob's favorite spot to sit and watch the fish and wish for a fishing pole!|
|They had kind of a beach and wading creek for little kids. Natalie made herself at home and did some posing on the turtle.|
