The Zoo!!

This is Logan's last month of pre-school for the year, so we are doing a few field trips and field day - fun end-of-the-year stuff.  Today we took the kids to the zoo in Waco.  Super fun!!  It's been quite a while since we'd been, and Myra never had.
Here is most of his class.  We missed Anna, as her baby sister was ill.
The kids were transfixed by the komodo dragon!  I think it sort of freaked Myra out.  I've never seen one this active!
After the reptiles, there was this cool Asian-ish themed play area.  These plates are chimes that ring when the kids jumped on them.  So cool!!
Logan "rode" a pony,
and practiced his rope swinging.
The lion was unimpressed...
We wandered around looking at all the cool animals (and making appropriate animal noises - so funny!!), then broke for lunch at the park in the zoo.
Myra liked climbing in the snake.
Logan liked climbing ON the snake.
and the balance beam.  That gymnastics stuff is really sinking in!
We had a great time!  Both kids crashed out in the car on the way home.  They needed the sleep after a busy day at the zoo!!

We love the Waco zoo! It looks like they've added some cool stuff since we were there last - I guess that means it's time for another trip!
