Tales from my life as a mom of 2 sons and 2 daughters

Today we took River to the zoo for the first time. I don't know what we were thinking as it was 93 degrees not including the humidity but it was a fun time. We got some great pictures so of course I had to share with you.

These were the first animals we saw :)

River and I looking at the birds :) He was rather impressed, he kept smiling and jabbering and laughing :)

They had some birds that were free to roam around the walkways in the bird sanctuary. River and I were watching the bird.. who was very impressed with Doug

The bird going in for a better look at the camera... he actually started pecking at it LOL

River looking at the Gazelles. The Gazelles were camped out in the shade near the walkway to keep cool. Smart Gazelles... stupid people. LOL

Daddy and River looking at the reptiles in the reptile exhibit (while getting the chance to cool down in the A/C)

And of course what kind of visit to the Jacksonville Zoo would it be with out visiting the huge Jaguar Exhibit

River getting the chance to get up close and personal with a miniture goat in the petting zoo.

River trying to get a closer look at a goat that was in a pen.. the goat looked like River's fingers would make a great snack....

On our way home from the zoo we stopped and got some nuggets for River and he fell asleep while eating them... he was tuckered out.. he woke up before we got home and refused to go down until bedtime... he was one tired boy!
