A few weekends ago we went to the zoo for Ryan's Dad's work party. It just happened to be one of the hottest days of the year, but it was fun! It was ice block day so they froze all of the animal's food. We got to watch the elephants crush their ice blocks to get to the melons inside. The cougars, on the other hand, just layed and waited for their food to thaw. Both the elephant and giraffe are pregnant, due anytime. We got to see the new little snow leopard which was so cute! After 5 all the employees and their families got to stay for a few more hours. It was great because as the sun started to go down, the animals came out. As you can see in the pictures we got so close to some of the animals! We went to the bird show twice and got to take a picture with the bald eagle. I just love the zoo, it was a great day!
