Arctic Zoo Fest - 2/12/2011

February 12, we headed up to the Saginaw Children's Zoo. Mant of the local areas were doing things in celebration of winter. It was a gorgeous day so we took advantage of the day in order to enjoy the animals. (I'm also excited to see the changes going on with the addition of new animal exhibits. Can't wait to see them this spring/summer.)
Here are the sled dogs that were out front of the zoo.

We headed in and went to see if the wolves were active. The one was wandering around the exhibit while the other one snoozed on top of the hill.

Then we checked out the Bobcat, Eagles, and Donkeys.

I love the structure they built a round the greeter bear. Such a cool idea as well as an excellent teaching tool.

Asa and Eli were totally loving the snow everywhere.

We got to watch a chainsaw carving demonstration.
Not even a huge pile of snow was going to stop the boys from playing on the playground.

The boys decided they wanted to feed the animals, so we made the donation to get some hay, then they wouldn't get close enough to actually feed the animals.

Before leaving, we, of course, had to ride the carousel. We rode three times.

Asa actually rode one of the moving horses, well a zebra to be exact. I was so proud to see him try something new.

And the third time on the caurosel.

As we were about to leave, we noticed they had a craft station set up for the kids so we went in to let the boys color.

We stopped to say good-bye to the dogs.

And I tried to get some good shots of the boys, this was the best I got, thet were ready to be done and head to the car.
