What a Zoo!

Ever since the koalas arrived at the Calgary Zoo we have been promising Avery a trip to see them. I told her that when Daddy got home from work, we would go. Well, the day he got home, the begging began. So yesterday was the first day that we had nothing scheduled or planned, and the weather was warmer than it had been in weeks, so off we went. (Doesn't Grant look pleased??!!)
Going to the zoo in the winter is a brilliant idea. There was no one there. We didn't have to rush, or hunt for a place to eat lunch. There were no crowds in front of the animals. We could just stand and watch all day. And it was nice. Other times we have gone I have always felt that I could only let the kids take a peek so that others could do the same, but not yesterday. They had free reign of the African Savannah exhibit. But the highlight was the koalas. We lucked out and they were actually moving around and eating. Something that they don't do often as the lucky buggers sleep for 20-22 hours a day. Can you imagine! So I got a couple of pretty decent pictures of them, and other animals too. It was a great trip!

Are Grant and Avery related by chance? Same look! Good thing you and Cohen like to smile!
