nc zoo with the fam

we're going to the zoo!
Beautiful fall days are perfect for exploring the NC Zoo, which surprisingly, is the world's largest zoo habitat!

checking out the gators
We met the Gaubs for some fun at the zoo-- the kids had fun searching for the alligators.

Checking out the cougar.

hannah and the seals
Hannah really liked the seals and sea lions.

polar bear kids

arctic fox and polar bear
Ben was great at pointing out the hard to find animals, like the arctic fox, to Ellie.  We saw the polar bear in his new habitat-- so weird to see him surrounded by so much green!

picnic lunch
We packed a picnic lunch to eat at the zoo, complete with frosted animal cookies!

climbing the web
After lunch, the kids ran around on the playground for a bit.

The playground is full of giant bugs and plants to play on and explore.
