mommy & me at the hogal zoo

on saturday bryan and i took penny to the zoo. it happened to be "mommy and me" day and we got $7 entrance and a free shirt. they also had a ton of fun free events, but we made our way up there a little late and missed out on some of the swag. it was a beautiful day! penelope really liked the birds and the monkeys.
penny checked out some penguins building a nest, while the penguins behind her were putting on a show!

she thought the orangutan was pretty cool too...he really performed for us. she growled at a lot of the animals and ran away from bryan and me everytime she could.

there was a great big elephant sculpture with tribal-like carvings on its side. it would make sweet elephant sounds when you stepped on the elephant footsteps. bryan and penelope really liked it.


her favorite thing was this huge granite ball in a pool of water. the ball could turn when you pushed it. penelope would not let us tear her away from it...and when we finally did it was a VERY sad experience. i think she will like the zoo even more next year.
