Okinawa Zoo

I bet you thought I wasn't blogging anymore, didn't ya? I can't believe how fast this month is flying by, and I haven't had the time or energy to blog! By the time night rolls around, I am completely done for the day.

This week was no exception. It was a spring break and a gloriously busy one at that. The kids had a great time! Four of the six days, they spent considerable time on different beaches, one day was dedicated to the zoo and the one day spent at home was filled with catching up on homework and projects; whew!

This post showcases several pics of the zoo. Rebecca and I wore our kids (and ourselves) out with a fun filled, and hot day at the zoo. I had heard mixed reviews on the zoo, but all in all we had a great time. The "wonder museum" is awesome and similar to the much loved Cleveland Childrens Museum...but better and only 100Yen per kid! The grounds were beautiful and the animals...well, as long as you moved past the insanely angry chimps that like to throw "poo" (yes, you read that right) on you to make you stop staring at them then it was "A-ok!" It was interesting (and sad) that the large animals (chimps, lion, bear etc) had extremely small cages while the coi fish had a large lake to call their own. The "petting zoo" area was the kids favorite, so here are several cute pictures of the kids having some fun.

Josh and his favorite "chicky." I love how this picture shows the brightness of his blue eyes.

Josh found a "squatty potty" just his size.

Who knew that washing hands could be so fun?!

Gorilla climbing.

Welcome to the zoo!

The zoo had all of these cute little "walking signs" to follow and be excited about! :)

Andrew loved the chicks.

A rare picture of Mom and Josh, thanks Rebecca!

No worries here, the chick is not dead, just asleep. Apparently, Logan is a chick-whisperer.

Oh the blog and pics are so great! I've missed talking to you the last couple of days, I've been down south helping the 'ole folks. I'm so glad you all had a great break. How was the military trailer? Did you stay?
