Bronx Zoo

Another fun thing we did on our Thanksgiving trip was visit the Bronx Zoo. We hadn't been to the zoo in about a year and a half, so it was really fun for Bryn.
With my sister in law Tyra and my wonderful mother in law.
I didn't get any good pictures of the animals, but the tiger exhibit was really cool.
Maybe our favorite part of the zoo was watching these turtles! That poor little turtle got flipped over onto its shell and it was kind of comical to see him shimmy around and dance his little legs around, trying to flip over. His friends marched around him, but offered no help. (I'm sure a zoo keeper eventually flipped him over, right?) Bryn is still concerned about this turtle and keeps asking if someone flipped him back over. When the turtle initially flipped over Bryn announced "Mom! I just saw a turtle DIE!!!"

One of the coolest parts of the Bronx Zoo is all the old architecture. There are so many beautiful, old buildings.
Kind of an interesting "cage" for rhinos, right? I thought the big domed roof was kind of cool.

Apparently, there's no climbing allowed on this rhino. Oops!

With my awesome sister in law Jess. Her fourth little boy is hiding under that blanket!
My oldest niece Abby. Abs is just the best and it was so fun hanging out with her! I wish we lived closer because she was my crafting buddy every night and she was so darling with both my girls.
Josh and Bryn loved the bug carousel and rode it about five times in a row. Josh was in heaven :)
Yay for the Bronx Zoo! It occupied us for over 4 hours, until we got kicked out at closing. Such a fun outing!
