nashville zoo

what?! did you think for a moment we would visit a city and not see their zoo? well then, you haven't been reading this blog very long! ;)

one of the first exhibits were these gorgeous macaws....and they were SO close!

the zoo also had this amazing playground! it reminded me of something out of peter pan.

and look at what the next exhibit had.....no, not wild day's.

meerkats. we were checking them out from the interactive tunnel...very cool!

oh wait, there is a fierce day at this zoo....it is even growling!

maybe that is why poor big b looks scared! ;)

the bamboo forest was SO pretty...it even had a really nice water feature the kids loved.

their petting zoo, had such a great idea...let the kids not just pet, but brush the goats! vivian was only too excited to help...

bauer was a little more intimidated.

first he was a bit stand-offish...checking everything out carefully.

then he decided a little pet would be ok.

luckily no one was asked to pet this fierce creature!

at lunch....well, b didn't quite make it to lunch. this always seems to happen at some point during vacation, he has just had enough. he slept for an hour and half DURING lunch at the mellow mushroom....oh to be two, again! :)
