The Zoo was a Zoo!

Yesterday, Trey and I decided to load the girls up and head north to the OKC Zoo.  This was Layla and Jenna's first trip to the zoo and boy, was it a zoo!  It was way, way crowded, but I guess that's what you get when you venture out on a beautiful, Friday afternoon during Spring Break.  If I had to sum up the experience in one word, I guess I would have to say it was fair.  We ended up staying an hour and a half, which, in hindsight, was about half an hour too long.  Don't get me wrong, the girls had a good time, they were just over it pretty quickly.  I think they really enjoyed getting out of their stroller to see things up close and personal, but they did NOT enjoy getting back in their stroller to move on to the next exhibit...who can blame them?  

Entering the zoo grounds.

Going through the cave into the Children's Zoo.  I think Jenna's face reveals how they felt about that!

They loved watching the sea lions swim around and bark.  I think they could have stayed there for hours.   

But, their favorite part of all was riding the carousel.  I KNOW they could have stayed there for hours!

We will definitely be making more trips to the zoo in the near future...just maybe on a not-so-crowded day!
