Lions, Tigers And Bears Oh My!

Jaxson took his first trip to the zoo today.  We were invited to go by my friend and co-worker, Stephenie and her two kids, Ethan (8) and Brooklyn (3).  We had a great time and Jaxson was so well behaved.  I haven’t been to the Blank Park Zoo since I was in grade school when we went on a field trip, so I was pretty excited to go also.  Jaxson’s favorite things were the giraffes and the monkeys.  He kept pointing and laughing at the giraffes and wanted to keep watching them, but we had to keep moving.  We also checked out the zoo’s exhibit “The Scoop on Poop,” which was pretty funny, gross, and educational.  I learned that an elephant eats 400 lbs of food a day and can poop my weight in 6 hours!

We’re getting ready to take the train ride.

    Fun to see Ethan on your blog. Did you take any of Brooklyn? Jaxson looked like he was really learning about the animals! Good for him! My kids always liked the zoo there. We went all the time when we lived on the south side. And thanks for the lesson on elephant poop and the sleep patterns of lions. Interesting!
