Amy loves seeing him so close to. It is really neat to get to be so up close with such a huge animal. I love love love this picture of Eli right up close... he is looking at the school kids but he was more wishing they would leave. I think he really enjoyed Patrick this time!
We had to get a group shot and poor Camden was NOT comfortable at ALL with it. She was shaking so badly... poor little girl... she will probably have a fear of gorillas now...
Then or course there was the Epic Battle of being able to turn the crank at the penny press. Leland had been over there playing with it for some time (and a school group of first graders kept pulling Leland away until I got loud enough for the teacher to hear... oops...)
The battle Clearly ended when Eli shoved Leland and got his hand a little too close to Leland's mouth and Leland chomped down... Poor Eli! Then we finally got to ride the monorail... most of the animals weren't out so we were glad we didn't pay for it!
Amy got stuck by Leland who is the hardest on the monorail... that whole sit still thing is really hard for him!
We then headed to the childrens Zoo and played there for a while but it was SO crowded because of all the school field trips that we headed out to the carousel and rode it 3 or 4 times
Little Eli doesn't like the ones that go up and down... but one that goes in circles... totally his cup of tea... only its a nest... but there was nothing clever for that
Leland LOVES riding the up and down ones... but didn't mind riding with Eli either. Poor Camden didn't get to rid in the nest because Leland didn't want her to touch the steering wheel thing in the middle...
