Last Tuesday, Kade, Ky, Grandma and I went to the Hogle Zoo. It brought back a lot of memories of going there when I was young (although they have fixed it up a lot since I was there last). The boys had such a good time, and it was fun watching them name all the animals. At almost every exhibit, they would point to the animals and say, "Hold you, hold you" or, "hug, hug." They were disappointed when we told them that it wouldn't be a good idea to hug what they thought was a nice, big, teddy bear.
But they were most disappointed when, no matter how hard they pulled on the fence, the zebras were "stuck!"
They loved to watch the zookeepers feed the elephants lots and lots of bananas.
We got to see this really cool, rare, white alligator. When we got to the exhibit with the other alligators, both the boys started doing the gator chomp. Then Ky lifted both hands above his head and said, "Touchdown!" They are such Gator fans that even the real alligators at the zoo remind them of football!
