zoo in the snow?

hey jordan, what so you want to do today?
the zoo!
nevermind that it was cold outside and snow on the ground! we went to the zoo... surprisingly the animals that were usually sleeping were up walking around and being playful! and yes, i suppose that it was nice not to have the crowd...
at first i thought we were crazy... the cold breeze was cutting at my face, but as the day went on, we really started to enjoy ourselves!












we followed some peacocks around...
got 'velcro' kisses from the giraffes...
it was fun... the cougars were up, all the monkeys were out playing around and baby giraffe looked like she was going to topple over.

we also stopped by 'this is the place'... kasey and jord had never been there and it was just across the street.














it was cool, jordan had fun in the snow while kasey and i read everything... we will have to come back in the summer and walk around the whole park.

That sounds really fun. I love the zoo. I had no idea they had a "this is the place" monument. I want to go there. We need to visit Utah sometime. It's been a while.

remember when we went to the "this is the place" monument in like march and it was freezing and the chances of getting attacked by mountain lions was really high? yeah, that sucked.

The zoo in the winter? That just sounds cold! We will be planning a trip to the zoo in the spring. Maybe this year we'll visit "This is the Place" while we're down there. If Jordon likes animals - you guys should come up here for Baby Animal Days. Then she could spend all morning petting baby cows, chicks, sheep, . . . FUN!
