Trip tp Caldwell Zoo

Those Penguins are Crazy.
She loved watching the animals that moved a lot. She didn't care much for the lazy, sleepy animals. She loved watching the penguins swim underwater and dive into the water.

Can I Have the Birdie Mommy?

They have an interactive bird place there (just like the zoo in Tampa). We bought a seed stick so that the birds would come to us. She kept trying to grab the birds. Daddy loved this exhibit too. It was his favorite at Tampa. This was by far our best zoo experience. We were there shortly after opening today (Monday) and it was like we had the whole place to ourselves. It was just the right size of a zoo too. We were there for 2 hours. We could have been there longer, but some exhibits we didn't stay long at.

Now, Both Daddy & Isabel Want Pet Goats

They had a little petting zoo with a variety of goats in it. Daddy has always had a fondness for baby goats, especially when he watches Planest Funniest Animals and he watches the little goats just jumping around. He thinks that is hilarious.

Yes, Daddy was There too!

We had a good time at the zoo. We even stopped in the gift store and bought her something. We bought her a spider monkey puppet & a couple little plastic animals. I was thinking about a book at first, but her & daddy were playing with the puppet so much and she kept sticking it in her mouth that we figured we had to buy it. We also ate at Sweet Sue's. It was pretty good. It was a buffet that was all homemade.

We were supposed to get rain here today, but didn't. It was really a perfect day out. This afternoon the resort had an ice cream social that we went to. Yummy. Not sure what we have planned for the rest of the week. We'll figure it out as we go.

I was watching the program "Dirty Jobs" the other day and they had a blurb about goats. There is a condition goats can have that if they are startled, they'll faint. It was so funny to watch, because the goats would be running around and then all of a sudden they just fall down and lay there all stiff looking. Andy would have found it very humerous!

Yes, he would love seeing that.
