Birmingham Zoo


Earlier in the week we went down to the Birmingham Zoo. It's about an hour drive from where we are staying. We went on Tuesday because Tuesdays are half price admission days. We had a pretty intense storm the night before so we weren't sure if we'd be able to make it but the rain disappeared and the weather was just crazy cold and gloomy. I'm glad we went on a half priced day because the zoo really doesn't have many animals but despite that we did have an excellent time. I was excited to take Little Red because she's finally old enough to know she's looking at animals. She had a blast, as did the rest of us.

At the zoo:

Rob's Fav, the Komodo Dragon

Oh how I love the OWLS!!!

Can I take these home???


Black Swan (Red was in love with these!)


Trying to get close to the black swans

The weirdest monkeys I have ever seen!

Even though the primates were indoors (and it was HOT in there) these little guys were all huddled together

The most amazing elephant ever. He can flap his ears, bow and do a few other tricks!

My giraffes



Gobble, gobble, gobble

She saw this bunny and said "I give hug?" She loved that thing!

So cute!

We were only there a few hours, it was cold and we saw all of the animals so there really wasn't much else to do. After the zoo we drove around the neighborhood surrounding the zoo. It's a beautiful area, the city is called Mountain Brook. It is full of gorgeous (and expensive) homes. I'd love to live in a place like Mountain Brook!
