For Julie's birthday, her Grandma and Papaw renewed our membership to the zoo for another year and we have already enjoyed a few visits to see the animals this spring. We all went together yesterday while Ben had the day off of work and we had a great time. There is a new exhibit this summer where you are able to feed birds and Julie loved it. She loved getting so close to the cute birds. Her favorite animal is still the monkeys but lately she's been looking forward to seeing the giraffes and hippos too. We brought a picnic with us and ate under some threatening rain clouds but didn't get wet. It was a really good day. Her new favorite part of the zoo is the choo-choo train so we ride it everytime we go to the zoo these days. Thanks Grandma and Papaw for the fun zoo trips, we will have many more this summer!
