When asked what she wanted to do for her birthday, Emily chose a trip to the Bronx Zoo. Her birthday is not until Saturday, but because of a conflict we decided Tuesday was the day to do it. It really is a wonderful zoo, even though it's in the midst of a huge city.
We spent a lot of time in the bird house. Look at her eyes. Her allergies are acting up big time!
Actually, it seems to be the only place that my camera will take decent pictures of birds!
We took out a family membership so Emily got a t-shirt out of it.
The boys got to lug heavy backpacks all day. We brought our lunch because spending $4-$5 on a hamburger is not my idea of a good time!
Unfortunately, I only seemed to be able to get the backside of most of the animals.
This guy looked how I felt by the end of the day.
We rode the monorail through the Wild Asia exhibit.
In the Congo.
Emily loved the butterfly garden.
My little butterfly. :-)
It was a really nice day and I'm glad we went while we could becuase we've had rain the past two days. Because we have a membership which is good for 5 different zoos and aquariums in New York City, we can go back anytime over the next year.
