We're Going to the Zoo!

Photobucket

Hello! I got back from my wonderful trip to see Ryan on Saturday. I was there for over a week and we did so much amazing stuff in that time.

We went to the Virginia Zoological Park in Norfolk. It was the greatest little zoo because it we so spread out over a ton of land that it didn't feel crowded at all. They had an awesome load of animals! :)

I fed this huge goat with big marble-like eyes! She was so gentle; she only used her tongue and lips to grab the food, never her teeth. :)

Loved this little prairie dog! The exhibit had those plastic domes where you could stand up in and looking into the prairie dog world. Pretty cool!

This elephant looked so perfect that it was hard to believe it was real!

We heard that there were baby lions born in May but we didn't get to see them. This must have been their dad; he was the only lion we saw.

Okay, this is kinda gross looking. It seemed like her legs were gonna snap at any second! Lol.

This little spider monkey was probably the best animal we saw all day! He was just chilling there and let us pose with him. He kept looking into our eyes like he was talking to us. Lol. So darling! Ryan wants one as a pet! Ummm, noooo....
