See Julians giraffe in his hand? He wanted to bring a toy animal to match all the real life ones. The logistics of that goal eventually got complicated.
And there he is matching his toy zebra with the real thing.
my sweet boys <3
My little lion
The red pandas were actually really neat. I never knew they existed until today. They were pretty active too. Cool beans.
The train. bring cash to pay for this because if it rains you have to go all the way back to the gift shop to buy a ticket. Our conductor was awesome though and super nice. I just had to say that because I love seeing people who enjoy their jobs and do them well (why is that so hard to come by these days?)
I would really like to emphasize how horribly muggy and hot the zoo was. I just wanted to go home and shower. That's why I look terrible in this picture but alas it's like the only one I have of me and the boys because I'm always behind the camera, so it's a keeper!
The boys and the alligator snapping turtle. I don't know what is creepier this, or an alligator gar. Sheish, Alabama likes their gators.
I just thought that this picture of Boaz was really neat.
Sending some Birmingham love out today from Alabama
