Yay for company picnics! Luke's company likes to host their annual picnics at the zoo. It is great fun and admission is free for everyone in the company including their families. The picnic was from 11-2, but we took advantage and got to the Zoo at around 10:30 and visited before we joined the festivities. You never know what you're going to get at the zoo and unfortunately this time the red panda (my favorite) was sleeping when we went by his habitat. However, we did get to see the penguins diving in and out of the water chasing each other. The hippos were also going at it... so unfortunate the camera wasn't ready because MAN it was awesome seeing them open their mouths popping out of the water. There was a giraffe feeding when we stopped by so we got to see the giraffes up close too. Considering Lily's favorite at the zoo are hippos and Arya's favorite are the giraffes, I think we did well.
The company provided a lovely lunch, face painting, a magic show, tickets to both the dinosaur exhibit and the carousel, and fun bags for the kids. Needless to say we had a fabulous time. Thank you Cequint!
Arya was very excited to see the Giraffes up close.
Love Orangutans, they are so fun and clever.

Dinosaur Exhibit. It was quite fun... the girls were a little scared at first, but I think they enjoyed it.
