Day at the Zoo

watching the rhinos

 We spent a great afternoon at the Seneca Park Zoo on Sunday, July 29th.  Brynn loves the animals, and she got to spend time with her cousins at the same time.  Kathy is here from the Netherlands with Mink and Nola, and the kids don't get to spend a lot of time together, so when they're here, we try to get them together as much as possible.  This was our first trip to the zoo since the new African exhibit opened this spring.  The lions were sleeping right up against the glass, so Brynn got a close-up view of them.  We got to see the rhinos, elephants, snakes (ewww!), and a bunch more animals.  I think the kids ended up having more fun wading in the stream than actually seeing the animals, but as long as they have a good time, that's all that matters!
