New Year's Day at the Zoo

We decide to head to the zoo on New Year's Day.  It was a little bit cold when we first got there, but it quickly warmed up and turned out to be a fantastic day to be outside at the zoo.  The zoo here is really nice for little ones.  There seems to be a place for the kids to play and run around everywhere you turn.  We would walk around and look at a few animals then play for a while, then do it all over again.  They have a very nice dedicated children's area with a playground, special kid size picnic tables, a pretend cow you can milk, tractors to climb on and a petting zoo.  The girls loved this area and it was hard to get them to move on after this on.  It was a wonderful way for our family to ring in the new year together!

Looking at the goats in the petting zoo.  They weren't afraid of people at all.  Even small people that laughed and squealed in their faces!

Abby loved brushing the goats

Olivia just loved the goats
