Salt Lake's Hogle Zoo
One scary ape!
One huge elephant - it made noises and freaked Melia out
Very close giraffe, I wasn't even zooming!
Melia and Me
Melia and Bryce
Could you imagine this as your pet???
First carousel ride!
One of the days on vacation we went to the zoo. I was suprised of the size of the zoo, I thought itwas going to be alot smaller. I really love the zoo and to see the animals but the animal lover inside of me gets really sad when I have to see these gorgeous wild animals out of there natural habitat and squished into these small, glass faced cubicals for the entertainment of others. Sigh! Poor things!
Anyways we did have lots of fun and Melia knows EVERY single animal noise (im not kidding, ask her anything!) and had a blast seeing all these animals that are on TV and in her books. Her favorite were the monkeys (mine too!) and the elephants. She really loved the huge snake too...ugh! I better watch out I have a feeling she might want one as a pet later on in life! We saw a bunch of wild turkeys... yeah so I thought they were vultures at first so I yelled to Bryce "Look at all of those vultures!" He looked at me funny and I am sure everyone else standing around thought I was a complete idiot! Haha So funny.
