Hanging Out With The Animals

I've been meaning to post these pictures for a few weeks now, but as per usual, I've been neglecting my blog. But here they are. St. Paul has a lovely FREE zoo and conservatory that we like to hit up once in a while. The conservatory is always my favorite though. Isn't it pretty?




Then we headed over to the zoo. Here's the clan watching those precocious monkeys:
And the precocious monkeys putting on a show:
After the monkey house, we headed over to the butterfly exhibit, always one of my favorites:
And of course, we couldn't leave without posing with the fake animals.

Great pictures. The conservatory is gorgeous, but I'd still prefer the monkeys. I'm like a little kid when it comes to animals.

Posing with fake animals avoids those horrible zoo maulings that happen when I climb over zoo fences to take pictures of polar bears. Oh wait...that was someone else.

WOW! That exact same turtle is in the Detroit Zoo...

Perhaps turtle are quicker movers than you think.
