Today we visited Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa. It's the second time we've been there and it's a great zoo. Unfortunately we got to the giraffes late and weren't able to feed them (which is my favorite part about this zoo - feed a giraffe?! How cool is that??!) Otherwise, it was a, well, you'll see...
Checking out the orangutans - the girls loved to watch any animal that they could actually see moving - Rachel wanted to climb right in and play :)
Somehow they had clothes:
And the ability to order pizza...
The kids watching the fish and the manatee - the girls would actually follow them as they swam past the glass - it was quite cute!
The manatee up close - he (or she) was doing a somersault.
Kaitlyn and Caleb in front of a black bear.
All of us lined up in front of the giraffes - we were quite a group but not many people noticed the triplets - I'm beginning to think it's actually the stroller that attracts attention and not the babies themselves.
And the giraffes I like so much.
"Africa" was the best part of the zoo - for some weird reason we didn't see any tigers or lions :( How weird is that?
The kids taking a camel ride:
The day was going pretty well until this happened:
Which then required a lot of running with no umbrellas and a lot of wet. Here are Rachel and I right before we were finally getting into the van - don't we look a mess??
Either way the girls ended up like this:
And this on the ride home.
