The Zoo


I haven't posted much about our Spring Break which happened a few weeks ago because honestly, we didn't do much to post about. I just reveled in the fact that I did not have to wake up to an alarm or pack lunches for 5 days straight. That was a great Spring Break to me!

We did, however, drive to the Zoo one day during that week.

It might have only been April, but it was HOT! Poor Jocelyn was sweating in her carseat/stroller the entire time.

You know... I really think our zoo needs a Rhinoceros.

It certainly had enough monkeys :)


Rusty the Red Panda was trying to hide from us that day. I think this little guy is the most photographed animal by me. Both Jaina and Jayce have matching Red Panda stuffed animals that are very special to them.

I just don't know how I feel about zoos in general. On one hand, I like how zoos have helped endangered species increase their numbers. I like all the research they do so we can know more about all sorts of animals. I think that the animals at the zoo are well taken care of.

But on the other hand, my heart aches for these animals that they may never know their true home in the wild. No matter how nice a zoo it is, its still captivity. And that makes me sort of sad.
