Zoo - Second Home Lately

Well, if you've been sleeping under a rock, then you might not know that we live really close to the zoo. That's why you'll find us there on any given weekend where the temp. is over 50-degrees.

Bella is old enough now to enjoy the animals, especially...goats. Not the most exotic creatures at our lovely Atlanta Zoo, but she loves them. Hugging. Kissing. No worries. She doesn't hold back.

I'll shut-up and get to the pics. Maybe by the end of this long photo presentation, you'll feel like you went to the zoo with us. Maybe you should...holla.

Don't even think about getting on this thing with her, because she's a big girl now...

The conductor of the train, who by the way, pronounced the word "deaf," "deef," was kind enough to snap a family photo.

We tried to get her to say, "Chugga Chugga Chugga Chugga Choo Choo." I guess that's a little too advanced. She would just stare at me.

Loved her some goats. This is just before I ended her make-out session with it.

Here she is with her friend, The Hog.

Nothing to say here.

I'll tell you what she's thinking, based on her actions right after this pic..."Which one should I tackle and hug?"

Fierce.

For those at the zoo who thought she was a boy, here's your proof otherwise. She does NOT like to get her hands dirty. OOOOOOOEEEEEEEE!

She's amazing.

If I can just get her to brush her own hair...

And...a ride out on daddy's shoulders, which no smelly animal can replicate.

Hope you enjoyed your trip to the zoo with us.

You guys should get a pet pig. It would be economical bc you just feed it left overs and garbage. Bella would love it and I would think it was cool. You could call him/her "Pig" or "Oinker" or something cool like that. I want a pig.
