Showing Daddy the giraffes.

We liked the giraffes!

Showing Mommy the elephant, which we also liked.

Completely enthralled by the hippo.

Soon after this, a very friendly meerkat got a little too close to the glass. I thought it was cute. Madeline…well, didn’t. She also DID NOT like the monkeys! She cried pretty much through the primate habitat.

Look! I'm a giraffe!

Mommy's favorite part of the zoo.

We had a really fun day, in spite of the boiling heat. (Seriously? 87 degrees in April??? Ridiculous!)

She really liked all the birds, but I think the primates spooked her a little when they go too close to the glass.

Just the first of many trips to the zoo in her lifetime!
