A few weeks ago, (before Mary went into the hospital) we took the kids to visit a nearby zoo. It was a little roadside zoo, called the Luray Zoo (in Luray, VA). It was a little scary, but it had some pretty cool animals and you could get VERY close to them, so that was neat for the kids.
This is the sign as you enter the zoo!
Getting ready to go in:
This zoo had one of the most impressive reptile collections I've ever seen! The snakes we all very active (must have been feeding time), usually you see snakes just coiled up in the corner. Mary liked the snakes!
Yes, they ACTUALLY has a Domestic House Cat on display! We thought this was HILARIOUS!
Here was their other cat:
It was a huge Bengal Tiger. Mary thought it was the coolest. When it would go into it's cage, Mary would say: "Tiger, where are you????"
Kate being silly:
Kate, Mary and Jackson:
Mary says 'hi' to a little goat.
When Mary saw the donkey, she said "Hi Eeyore!"
Mary also LOVED the porcupine. (I think she watches too much "My Friends Tigger and Pooh"!!!
Jackson feeling right at home with the Monkeys!!!
Getting ready to leave, everyone had a good time!!
Mary looking cool in her shades! When we got back out to the parking lot she said, "Dadda, I want to go home"
