Haleigh and Ella are always thrilled to see 'Baby Noah.'
We saw giraffes and hippos, crossed the jumping bridge, and saw elephants and the baby warthogs. We saw sleeping lions and cheetahs, then took a little break to have some lunch.
After lunch we got in line to ride the SkyRide over the Orangutan Center. What was estimated to be a 30 minute wait turned into about an hour, just as the sun came out and the day heated up. Noah kept himself occupied by walking along the divider fence between the lines.
They only allow 4 riders per car, so Noah and Ella came with me, and Darci and Haleigh rode together in the next one.
We tried a few selfies. :)
Maybe it was Rocky? He's the youngest of the 8 orangutans at the zoo. After our SkyRide, we went inside the exhibit to see what the rest of them were up to. It was crowded in there, but we did get one orangutan to pass right by our window. Little Noah was not too sure about that!
The girls wanted to get their faces painted, so we stopped for a little break while they got all decorated.
Haleigh was first, with the pink heart design.
Ella was next,
and she wanted a dolphin.
Noah just wanted his bottle. Such a big boy!
Noah did his own kind of posing. Ah, the life of a baby.
We had a nice day, and Darci and the girls headed south, while Noah and I headed back north to his house. As we arrived home, he was clapping his hands in recognition of a fun day at the zoo. :)
