Vacation - Part 2 - Hogle Zoo!

While in Utah, Grandma and Grandpa Carlile took us to the Hogle Zoo. Aunt Kristy came along with Casey and Clayton. We had a great time and loved seeing all the animals.

This is how we spent most of our day, walking and pushing strollers.

After seeing all the exhibits, we played on the playground.

Waiting in line for the carousel.

More playground time with Clayton and Grandma.

Ty made good use of the time he spent out of the stroller.

We caught this sweet fight between these two bears. It was amazing to watch how brutal they were to each other, but it didn't seem as though either one got hurt.

I love this look. We were watching a couple of monkeys who were making screeching sounds that could be interpreted by a 2 year old as fire truck sirens. Let's just say, Abe was quite confused by it all.


My little monkey.

This is not the animal we rode on the carousel. We rode the praying mantis whose tail end you can see in the right hand side of the picture, unfortunately it wasn't conducive to pictures, so we snapped this shot after the ride was over.

My kids love zoos. We saw bears fighting last time we went, too. My kids were fascinated by that. Glad you had fun.

zoos are pretty fun, even if the word zoos looks weird. Cute pictures, I love the one of him trying to look like a monkey.

so did you see my mom and kids? My Mom had the kids for awhile after Sam was born and took them a few times to Hogle zoo. Funny. I wish we could have seen you for awhile. Abe is getting so big. What a cutie.
