We had a picnic at the car, and ice creams in the zoo:
We had fun on the pedal boats. Susannah and Jacob were trying to splash us, but they weren't good at driving OR splashing, and ended up soaking themselves :)
We went on the train which turned out to be a really sweet ride, talking about a few animals and birds you can ONLY see from the train ride - we also went under a tunnel which THRILLED Sam :)
And the kids all loved how friendly the animals were in the petting zoo:
A really good day out and yet again FABULOUS weather :)
Today was a GORGEOUS sunny day and although it was 29c out, to me it didn't feel too hot! Abby struggled with the heat a little bit - but even Abby only had a few grouchy minutes!!
We picked up Susannah's friend Jacob, and headed to the zoo.
Edmonton zoo is partly under construction - it used to be a bit of a joke of a zoo, but they are working REALLY hard to improve things there, and every time we go now there is something new and different - the enclosures are sooo nice now for the most part, and it makes for a really fun day out!
Here are some of the creatures we saw:
