The ZOO!

We finally got to take both kids to the zoo! We'd been trying to wait for Mallory to be here when we took Julia for the first time. Sooo... we went to the Greenville Zoo on Saturday, July 14. Julia was a little fussy getting out of the stroller at the elephant exhibit, but nothing else seemed to really phase her. And well, Mallory is 7 now so she's used to all of it - unlike the first time we took her there at age 2!

Mallory loved getting to see all the monkey exhibits - she's on a monkey kick right now! And a couple of the monkey exhibits are all Julia really seemed to get excited about that day - she leaned forward in her stroller to look closer at the spider monkey and squirrel monkey exhibits. Otherwise, she was her laidback self as usual - just taking everything in and fussing a little when the stroller stopped.

I think we're going to try and go to another zoo in a few weeks - we have Hollywild less than 10 miles from our house and Riverbanks isn't that far away - in fact, it's on the way to Grandma and Grandpa's!

The Greenville Zoo isn't as big as some zoos. They don't have the lions exhibit right now - it says they're working on a giraffe exhibit and that both should be done Summer 2007. I'm guessing they're a little behind on their work don't ya think? I didn't see tigers either - don't know what happened to them. I know both tigers and lions were there when Mallory was 2, 4, and 5! We didn't go last summer - I was too pregnant for all that!

Well, it's time to get started for Monday. I will post pictures this evening of the zoo and Julia eating Mexican! :) later taters...
