Zoo Field Trip

On Wednesday April 9th I had the privilege of getting to go on Emma’s field trip to the zoo!  A big thanks to Robin for being willing to stay home with Foster and Cash so that I could go on the trip.  :)

There were so many parents that got to go, so I got to just tag along with a group that already had a parent guide.  We had a total of 4 girls and it was such a fun morning.  These are some of Emma’s dearest friends at school.

Ava, Emma, Marissa, and Nina:

These girls sure know how to pose!  Here they are inside the elephant exhibit.

The girls loved looking at the real life bamboo outside of the elephant exhibit.  Unfortunately one of the girls cut her hand on the bamboo… did you know that bamboo has some very rough edges?  Now I know!

Thankfully none of the girls fell in this little pond!

Hello Mr. Big Turtle!

Where should we go next?  The kids are learning all about maps at school so this was great real-life practice for them!  Also, it looks like Emma is wiggling a loose tooth in this picture! :)

We attended the sea lion talk about mid-way through our trip.  Our group sat behind the actual exhibit and looked through this observation window- they had perfect seats for the show!

What would you guess the kids are talking about here?  A zoo related question?  NOPE!

Owen just asked the kids who likes OSU and who likes OU.  :)  Emma raised her hand for OU.  Then I asked them to get back on track and watch the sea lions. :)  Kids are so funny.

We loved how this giraffe was standing.  They have to spread their front legs so they can bend over to reach the ground.  Each child had an animal to research and Emma’s animal was the giraffe.  She loved getting to see them in person after learning so much about them.
