A couple of weeks ago, my friend Amanda invited us to go to the zoo with her for FREE! She has a special pass that allows her to bring guests free of charge, so Alex and I enjoyed a day at the Oregon Zoo with Amanda and several other friends. Rusty joined us after he got off work.
Alex loved looking at all the animals. He especially liked the fish and the water animals because the aquarium windows allowed him to get up so close to them. He even got to pet a few of the animals (the domesticated ones, not the lions and tigers!). We had a picnic lunch on a grassy field, spent some time playing in a big sandbox, and then enjoyed a ride on the zoo train before going home.
Here are a few pictures of our day.
Thanks, Amanda, for a really fun day!
