Yes, we went to another zoo.

I'm starting to notice a theme in the family outings I share with you.
What can I say?  I'd take pics at Target but I think they'd frown upon it.

I don't think you care much about all the animals we saw so here are just a some random photos from our morning at the Greenville Zoo.

This is a small city zoo, perfect for people with toddlers that want to walk the whole time, or anyone who's not in the best shape.

Lions are always a crowd pleaser.

As are the elephants.

Of course BigBoy had to bring the stinker face in most of the pictures I took of him.

It didn't impress BabyCakes.

Notice the adorable bandana pillowcase dress from Grandma?  BabyCakes was the one who insisted upon wearing her hat.

I love bamboo.  It reminds me of how much I want to go to Asia one day.

There were also large trees providing beautiful shade.  They just reminded me how much I want to see the redwoods of California one day. (I'm noticing another trend...)

I love that this zoo wasn't just a "clear cut cube farm" for exotic animals.  It's parklike setting could have been such a peaceful place had it not been for the toddler tantrums we enjoyed endured near the end.

But then again, it's still a zoo.  People there expect to see wild animals, right?  :)
