Finally Buffalo decided it would be nice this past weekend. It's like Mother Nature woke up and realized that it's supposed to be spring. So we did everything we could to be outside as often as possible. On Saturday we went to the Zoo! I have been needing some Zoo time for about a month now. I was waiting oh so patiently for the weather to cooperate so that we could head on over there and we finally were able to.
One of our first stops was the Gorilla Habitat. Recently, there was a baby gorilla born and I couldn't wait to see her. Is there anything cuter than a baby gorilla? I don't think so!
|The happy family. Dad Koga, mom Sydney and hiding behind her mom is baby Amari.|
|She finally ventured out without mom and I got a quick shot before too many people got in the way. The Gorilla house was mobbed!|
There was also a baby Giraffe born recently. They didn't have them out of their house so I didn't get any great pictures. She was sitting down so it's hard to tell that she's a baby.
|She found a stick and was a happy little girl after that. That stick went everywhere with us. Luckily she didn't go to crazy and accidentally hit anyone with it!|
|Can you see the zebra? He was hiding.|
|The Bison were not cooperating! Turn around!|
|The lemur was pretty happy to lounge in the sun and get his picture taken.|
|Next stop, the Rain Forest Falls. There are tons of birds and other rain forest-y types of animals all around. If you happen to be inside at noon and 3 pm it actually rains on you.|
|I am madly in love with the anteaters in the rain forest. I have no idea why but they are so ugly that they are cute. Does that make any sense? Anyways, I adore them!|
|Annabelle's favorite part is the bats.|
|And the swinging bridge.|
|No trip to the zoo is complete without a picture with the big fake rhino.|
|We found a fake pig to sit on too!|
