The kids in the Desert Dome--
My two beauties in front of a waterfall in the rainforest place.
Bobby in front of the bobcat--the kids called it a "bobbycat." He was very excited about this picture, let me tell you. It was torture to get this picture with him and the bobbycat.
Girls on the rope bridge in the rainforest.
Our family in the rainforest.
Kaylin loved hanging from these ropes.
Macy and her BFF Kaylee. (Yes, the Kaylee that discovered that I'd killed Macy's hermit crab) Kaylee lives around the corner and comes down almost every day this summer.
Kaylee's younger brother Joseph and Kaylin, who have become BFF's this summer as well.
At the entrance to the zoo
This funny gorilla was laying on top of one of those domes. I would put my hand on the dome, and he would put his hand on top of mine. Then he was petting a bug and playing with it. Very cute.
This old gorilla, 36 years old, was hilarous. He was deeply disturbed by a group of Mennonites. He would run up and bang on the glass right in front of them, then sit down and glare at them. When they would move, he would follow them and continue his behavior.We stayed and watched him for about an hour. It was fascinating.
Something new at the zoo is the Sky tram. Here's Kaylin (and Bobby's head) on the Sky Tram. I am not fond of these things (or Ferris Wheel) but I did great on this one. Mainly because Bobby did not rock it and try to push me out.
Here's Amy and the other two girls. Amy and Kaylee did not care for it at all, but Macy enjoyed it.
