Visit to the Zoo

We went to the Southern Nevada Zoological-Botanical Park today. If you don't know where this fancy sounding place is, it's the sad little zoo on Rancho. It was the perfect little 45 min pre-nap outing. We got to see some neat animals. They have monkeys (which Madeline thought were "scaaarry") and lions and ostriches and a lot of different birds (one actually says "Hello", so I'm guessing it wasn't rescued from the wild). The exotic Pigeon bird was my favorite. Lots of chickens and their cute little chickies just roam around under your feet waiting for you to drop food. We even saw a real live cock fight. Very exciting.

Madeline toodled around in the stroller for most of the time. We tried to let her walk around with the chickens, but they freaked her out. She did want to hold the chickies though. When we left she said Bye Bye to the Turdles. She likes Turdles.

As long as you're not a hard-core animal activist, I'd say it's worth a visit and it seems they could use the revenue.

Here we are sitting on a Turdle.

Hey look, it's grandpa!

And Maison cheesin' in the chest pack (had to hold the camera upside down to get him).
