The Virginia Zoo

Mike is on leave right now for 2 weeks, a much needed break from his crazy schedule as a Navy Recruiter!!  So, on Monday we decided to take the girls for a trip to the zoo.  It was around 80 or so degrees and beautiful outside, so a perfect day for it!  I hadn't realized this, but in the 10+ years we have lived here, Mike has never been!  Haley and I have been several times, but Mikaela hadn't been just yet either.  So, off we went for a nice family outing - something we NEVER seem to have time for!  We had such a great time.  Haley has always loved animals, and has always loved to read all the signs about the animals and soak in every bit of information she can about them!  Oh, the joys of homeschooling!  It was definitely an educational field trip for her though.  ;)  

Mikaela couldn't wait to see the elephants, and she sang Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star to one that looked like it was dancing and needed some music!  I think for all of us, our favorite part were the Meerkats.  There were 3 out and they were so cute and funny!  Mikaela couldn't wait all day to ride the train, so we saved the best for last and did that right before we left for the day.  We got a Family Membership because it would have already been half paid for after paying for the day, so we will have to make many more trips to the zoo for some family fun!  We really had a great day.  Here are some pictures ...
