The Indy Zoo by Camera Phone

I opted to make certain to fully enjoy my day off on this GORGEOUS spring day. The sun is shining, the sky is bright blue, the temp is in the upper 60's, low 70's. The kids and I ventured to the Indy Zoo for the day. Couldn't handle 2 kids, the stroller, and the camera so you'll have to just suffer with my camera phone pics!! Here, Teagan's on the floor watching the penguins swim from one side to the other.
Polar bear was really active in the first part of the morning... sorry it is blurry!
Zach at lunch- chowing down!
This giraffe was stretching over the fence to swipe some of the "good" greens on the "outside."
Teagan hits the 38" mark! They have rides at our Zoo... total rip off but she had fun on the carousel and on the train (so did Zach).
Next to the Zoo is the White River Gardens. We didn't actually get out into the Gardens but did enjoy the butterflies in the greenhouse. Here, Teagan is trying to hold very still in the hopes that a butterfly would land on her. One came close... and she got over excited and it flew away!

Heeeey, those are camera phone pictures? Wow. Nice quality Liz. I think they're great.

The kids look so happy, the day looks so warm - what a wonderful thing to do on your day off.

Thanks for sharing!

Hey, I've been there! I forget with whom, but I've made a point of going to the zoo everywhere I've lived, and I spent 6 years at IU Bloomington. As I remember, the Indy Zoo was one of the nicer ones. What a great way to spend a lovely spring day.

I love the picture of Teagan working very hard at staying still--you can see the effort!

Our Zoo is a nice little Zoo. It's not Great. It's Good. I look forward to taking the kids for a full day at the Cincinnati Zoo... and hope the place lives up to my memories!
