Henry Vilas Zoo

Last Thursday, we took a nice family trip to the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, WI.  It was a cool, cloudy day, with the occasional spitty rain.  BUT,  it turned out to be a wonderful day to go.  The animals were SO active.  The monkeys were climbing, the lion walked right in front of us, then hopped up on a rock and started roaring, the tiger also paced RIGHT in front of us, giraffes were moving around galore, the seals were swimming and making funny blowing sounds out of the water, one of the rhinos was pushing a log around, the peacocks were calling, the bears were smiling.  It was just awesome.  And the cherry on top of all of that?  This zoo is FREE!  So, we spent $25 + gas for the whole day.  We packed a picnic lunch, paid for a carousel ride for the boys, and bought each of them a little souvenir.  GREAT day, and melt my heart, Isaac was singing Kindermusik songs the whole time {his current class curricula is Zoo Train!}. Many highlights below. :)


PS:  I'm not sure why blogger won't adjust my upright pictures.  I swear I've tried everything!
