Trip to the San Antonio Zoo

Friday we were off to the San Antonio Zoo.  It always takes a little longer to get ready to go when you have kids but we finally headed out.  Traffic wasn't too bad on this "Black Friday Shopping Day" but not everyone was at the stores as the Zoo parking lot was packed.  Luckily we were able to find a slot and we were off.

It was a beautiful day as you can see by everyone's dress.  The jackets were left in the car.

Now that Morgan can read, she likes to check out all the signs.

And, of course, feed the fish.

We saw flocks of birds.

We had to spend time at the Petting Zoo so the kids could touch the pigs and goats.

Who to play with first?

Okay now, be sure to do a really good job of washing your hands after playing with the animals.

What are they doing Dad?  Is it time for a snack yet?

Woow, that's a big tiger.

How come that animal is on his knees Dad?

Hard to tell but the fish in the hippopotamus tank were having a field day nibbling on the hippo.  There were two hippos but the fish only liked one of them.

Okay now.  It is finally 3:00 PM and finally time for the hippo feeding.  Is everyone ready?

I know the hippos were ready.  The food was little tiny pellets like you feed the fish.  Either they get something else or a whole lot of the pellets at some other time to get as big as they do.


We saw lots of animals from elephants and tigers to zebras and crocodiles.  Everyone loves a trip to the zoo and the San Antonio zoo is great.
