A Trip to the Calgary Zoo

We went to the zoo zoo about you you you?! I've been nagging, bugging, pestering, and BEGGING Jay to take me to the Calgary Zoo for the 5.5 years we've been together! Do you think he gave in? Nope! What is it with guys and their aversion to zoos? I got voted out of the San Diego Zoo vs. Sea World trip when we were in Disneyland with my family too! Anywho, I finally made it there! Joy, Laura, and I took the kidlets there yesterday and it was sooooooooooo much fun! The weather forecast was for thundershowers and 100% chance of rain. But it ended up being a perfect day, weather and all! It just sprinkled for about a half hour when we first got there and then even the sun came out. The zoo wasn't busy at all, probably due to the forecast, which was even better. Danika & Luke got to see all the animals right up front as there were no crowds. Braden is obviously too young to appreciate the zoo, but his mommy sure did. Here's some of my favorite pics from the day:
Laura helping Luke feed the ducks.
 Luke just wants to goooooooo!!!
 Danika watching a tiger take a drink with her new stuffed tiger.
 And Lukey showing the lions his new stuffed lion!
 We had to take a break to play!!
 There were peacocks everywhere...finally found one that opened up his feathers!
 Hi, Braden!
 When one sees a must walk THROUGH it!
 Me and the little man...and giraffes - of course!
