First Trip to the Zoo

The Jacksons have had such a BUSY week that we decided to enjoy the beautiful weather today and head to The Chaffee Zoo. Our first stop was the elephants. Noah enjoyed the huge creatures who trumpeted quite loudly.
We just had to introduce Noah to the Zoo's most famous animal...Nosey. He came to the zoo in 1949, was named by school children in Fresno, and was the toast of the zoo until his death in 1993 (he was 47 years old).
We definitely enjoyed the animals in the Rainforest Exhibit. The roaring waterfall, squawking parrots, and birds nesting along the path made you feel as though you were actually in the rainforest.
We had fun looking at all the animals, spending time with each other, and taking pictures of our little Stinkpot! It's a good thing we have an annual pass because I know we'll be spending LOADS of time here over the next year.

  1. Ahhh. That hippo statue(?) was just asking to be a photo op! Would have done the same thing!! Maybe a little cousin zoo trip in June? We shall see :)

  2. I agree with Vanessa; the hippo photos are great. A trip to the zoo in June would be great. I can see Jonah liking all the animals and I'd love to see how the zoo has changed--I haven't been there is years.

  3. Noah is too cool for words standing next to the Nosey statue! Foot out, finger pointing, the shades. Awesome. :)
