It was Brogan's first time, and he was a HUGE fan from the moment he spotted the first bird!
We brought Avery's friend Kayla with us, and I think everybody was very happy with that last minute decision :)
The Aviary! This wasn't there last time we went to the zoo, and it was a hit! They absolutely loved being able to see the pretty birds without a cage in the way :)
Kayla was very helpful with Brogan :) When Gabe went of to park the van when we first got there, she obediently held Brogan's had so he wouldn't go running off, and Brogan in return absolutely adored her for giving him the attention! He kept on trying to hold her hand after that :)
You can see from the way he's walking how happy he is! He's at the zoo, he's got his squeaky shoes, and a big girl is holding his hand - does life get any better than this???
And Avery wasn't afraid of them! The first time we took her to the zoo she was probably about 18 months old, and she wouldn't go anywhere near those giant snakes! I remember I was holding her when we walked around the corner, and as soon as she saw them she started squirming and whining, and didn't calm down until she couldn't see them anymore! This time around she found them very interesting :)
