Free day at the Zoo in February

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

Not only does one of my son's have a big scrape on his nose that is very obvious - Now my other son has a black eye! :( YIKES! He ran straight into a table while he was chasing a ball that rolled underneath it. :(
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.

Man, You guys do look beat up but I'm sure they did have a blast!! It is really fun for kids to watch the animals and see how different they all look. I'm so glad for that oppertunity for you. I remember when we went to the zoo, the elephants and garilla's were my boys faviorite!

What an amazingly fun day! Who would have thought to do it in the winter, but actually, it looks like it was GREAT! And, free at that - can't beat that! I'm so glad you were able to do this! And btw, I LOVE looking at all the pics you put on your posts! Poor Landon and Carson - but I think that is life with boys!:-)
