We took a trip to the Chattanooga Zoo and Coolidge Park in Tennessee today. Thanks to our friend, Christi, we found out that on Wednesdays, admission to the zoo is only $1/person! Christi actually wasn't able to make it, but 3 of us took our 2 kids/each for a fun day! Here they are posing with the giant chimp.
This bird was funny...it would peck on the window at the kids which they thought was hilarious! Below they are sitting on the fountain in front of the red panda exhibit.
Now for a silly pose! Pray a special blessing on Ms. Bethany and Ms. Beverly for accompanying the kids into the petting zoo area! ha ha!
Noah loved petting the dog the best. Go figure! Below they are on their way out of the train car that was the observation area for the cougars.
After the zoo we went over to Coolidge Park by the river for a picnic and water play fun.
Kaitlyn decided she needed to work on her tan, so here are the girls soaking up some sun!
They couldn't sit still for long at all... I think Katie regretted agreeing to the whole sun sitting thing! ha!
The boys enjoyed the wide open spaces for running, playing tag, and more running!
On to the water fun! Huge fountains and stone animal statues shooting water...fun fun fun!
