When my neighbor called and told me that the Denver Zoo was offering a free day on Feb 6th and offered to drive my boys and I down along with her and her daughter - I jumped at the opportunity. I didn't really consider the fact that it was in the middle of winter and just snowed 20 inches in Denver 3 days before. :)
It was a little chilly but we got to go inside a lot and see the animals in their little "houses". and The boys, mainly Carson, despite any of the pictures really did enjoy it. and remembered to tell Daddy all about it when he got home from work.
|Giraffe's are so big|
|Awe struck by the huge-ness of the Giraffe|
|Camels looked cool in the winter with all their fur on|
|Once again - they really were enjoying themselves|
just enamored with all the animals they got to see.
(or making sure those noisy geese weren't going to eat them)
|Behind them you can barely pick out a Comodo Dragon!|
|A cool Orangutan with her baby|
|I promise - they did smile sometimes and enjoyed themselves :)|
|Looking at the cute penguins|
We look a little beat up around here, but we are having fun this winter.
How often do we get the opportunity to go to the zoo for free in the winter??? It was worth it! I was surprised at how many animals were outside still. And also very thankful for the many indoor opportunities.
