The Toledo Zoo

Sue Ann, Jordan, Madi, Rachel, Ethan and I enjoyed a day at the Toledo Zoo while we were visiting in Ohio.  It was a beautiful day for the zoo.  Hot, yes, but sunny, and not raining :)  Here are some photos.

Jordan learned an important lesson at the Zoo that day.  Never, EVER let your MOTHER hold the button on the drinking fountain!

Here's how THIS conversation went. 

Me: "Ethan...what are you DOING to that poor goat" 

Ethan: "I'm helping him smile for the camera!"

When we lived near Toledo we would take visitors to that terrific zoo!
I love the pic with his "ape" face and his fingers up the gorilla's nose. :)

Oh poo!!! You were practically in my backyard!! I am glad you enjoyed the zoo. That is truly a great zoo. They are always working on expanding (I am sure you could tell lol) and making it better.

I am actually kind of curious as to how you got on the ape?? :) Maybe "Grab the Tush and Push" would be an accurate way to describe it!?! :)I wish that I would have been there!
