ZOO Weekend

This weekend, we took Ben to the Hogle Zoo in SLC. We drove down Saturday morning and hit the zoo at about 1. We walked around for a few hours, looking at all the different kinds of animals. We stopped by the monkeys first because we know how much Ben loves monkeys, but he couldn't really understand that they were monkeys, cause they weren't making many monkey noises. bummer.. i'm sure when he's older he will love watching the monkeys!!

Then we looked at the elephants, but they were standing in their corner and Ben couldn't really see them. We did take pictures by the fake elephant and Ben enjoyed standing oh his truck!! Later, on our way out of the zoo, the elephants were out and one was eating and the other was climbing on the rocks... no joke!
Ben's favorite animal to look at and watch were thePENGUINS!! Probably because he was able to see them really well cause they were the closest. There was one little itty bitty penguin in particular, who stood really close to Ben and would flap his little flippers then look at Ben.. who would kick his legs around... They would go back and forth, it was really really cute!! Ben even laughed at the penguins!! Funny thing though, his Nana Call's favorite animal is the penguin!!

Ben's second favorite animal to see was the giraffe!! Again, probably because he was able to get up really close!! he really enjoyed watching them eat and especially when they would stick their huge purple tongues out!! Here is a picture of Ben with a giraffe.

Look to the next post for a bunch of pictures of Ben at the Zoo!!
