yesterday we joined esme’s kindergarten class on their first field trip to zoo boise. there is a new african plains exhibit that we were very excited to see. the giraffes were my favorite- they are magnificent! i would have happily spent the whole afternoon with them but when you are with a group of five and six year olds you are only allowed to spend a couple minutes with each animal and then you are on the run (literally) to see what is next.
after the giraffes we saw a big kitty ::
a big nest ::
and a tiny tiger ::
i think the monkeys were harper’s favorite. they were very cute and entertaining. they kept coming up to the front of their enclosure to check harper out. it looked like they were inviting him in to play! but no, we decided to pack up our sleepy little monkey and head home for a nice, long nap.
