Turtles, snakes, and goats...oh my!!

So, we decided this morning to take a trip over to Decatur to the Scovill Zoo with the kids and my mom. We had never been to this zoo before, so we didn't know what to expect. It is quite a nice little zoo with some animals that we weren't expecting to see. Becca was more interested in the Lion shaped drinking fountain, the carousel, and the train...didn't care so much about the animals. Bradley seemed to enjoy himself, especially the carousel (he rode a turkey...I sometimes forget that he is only 12) and the cheetahs. James enjoyed all of the birds and was quite interested in the snakes...he could look them eye to eye, behind some thick glass!! If you haven't been over to this zoo, it is worth the 45 minute drive over. Here's a few pictures of the day:

James trying to pet the snake

Gee-ma and James on the train

James and Daddy on the carousel (it was a snake kind of day for James)

Becca on the dolphin...she was very excited about this!!

Bradley on the turkey...the biggest kid of all!

The kids feeding the was quite funny to watch

Just being cute!!

There is a big tortoise in the background over James' shoulder

All 3 on the train...they didn't last long all together on 1 seat.

So, that was our exciting end to the weekend!! The adults I think had as much fun as the kids...which is always good. Hope everyone else had a good weekend.
