Santa Visits the Zoo

This was also the 14th trip to the zoo for me and the boys since March.
Since I didn't do birthday presents for my nieces and nephews this year, we took Skylar and Claudia to the Children's Zoo in Saginaw.

We met Santa who also drove the train, then of course we had to stop and watch the model train.

After riding the train we stopped to play on the playground equipment for a bit.

Eli waved to Santa and the train as they drove by.
I don't know if you can see it or not but the rabbit stuck its tongue out at me and Eli was so excited to see the horses.

Apparently the rabbit wasn't the only animal stixking its tongue out at me, this kangaroo was doing it too. Claudia was telling me she wanted to open the exit door herself.

Sktlar and Claudia running over to the penguin exhibit only to discover they weren't out on display.

Playing in the manmade beaver dam.

Peacocks were still roaming about and looking majestic as always.

Then we headed to the carousel where the girls and Eli and Chris rode three times. Asa only rode once by his choice.
First ride around.

Second ride around.

Third ride around.

Asa and I went over to see Santa ride by on the train. And Skylar was the only one willing to pose by the cow statue.
We left the zoo and stopped by the Montrose McDonald's for lunch. We all had a great day.
