After several trips to the Atlanta Zoo lately, we decided it was time for a change of pace. The Chattanooga Zoo offers $1 admission on Wednesday, and several friends of ours were wanting to take an adventure afternoon also, so we decided to all spend the morning (and afternoon) together.
First, our group next to the giant Chimp.
The petting area was very fun!
After I had been petting the camel for 2 or 3 minutes the zoo attendant came over and said "You probably shouldn't pet him. He bites!" Well, thanks...
The classic "silly shot".
After the zoo, we went to Coolidge Park, had a picnic lunch then devoted ourselves to some serious play time.
The animals shoot water out of their mouths - Zion LOVED that!
Canaan loved the whole thing!
Very wet, tired, and happy children.
Last, but not least, I am adding some pictures of my other anniversary present. Carrie said I should show them off, and it didn't take much encouragement to talk me into it!
