Girls Day at the Denver Zoo

I was watching a friend's daughter for the day today.  I figured we should go do something fun instead of sitting at home all day.  So I packed up Lily, Noelle, and Kairi and we went to the Zoo!  J and I have a friend, Loren, that is a keeper there and she agreed to meet up with us for lunch.  She ended up surprising us by taking us back through the barns to see/feed some of the hoofed animals after lunch!!

Checking out the Bearded Dragon.

They LOVED the lions today!

How Lily kept herself busy at the zoo.  
Oh, and I have caught her sucking every finger except her pinkies now.  Silly girl.


Taking a snack and play break while I fed Lily.

They spent a good ten minutes or so playing at the underwater polar bear viewing area.

 Yummy Eeyore!

Watching the Sea Lions swim.

Noelle's favorite animal - (African) Penguins

Shhh...he's hiding.

Noelle and Kai feeding Dikembe.

Lily and I!

This is Sam.  He likes it on top of the Giraffe house.  I guess he felt threatened by us.

LOVE this picture of the girls feeding the Zebras some carrots.

Feeding lettuce to an Okapi.

Even Lily got in on this action!

Geranuk showing us a trick.

 They gave the Geranuk some yams.  It wasn't hungry though.  Too busy re-chewing his treats from the last group that went though.

Thank you so much Loren for taking the time to show us your hoofed animals today!!


  1. I am so glad that you guys had a good time. We will have to do another visit when the boys can come and play too :-)

  2. That looks like it was so much fun! Lily is getting so big, she looks so different already. Super alert! :)
