Jacksonville Zoo

Went to the Jacksonville Zoo this past Monday after dropping my mom off at the airport and the kids loved it. 
We saw this monkey who was reaching outside of his fence to grab leaves off of the tree to eat.
This Jaguar who was waiting patiently for his meal. FYI, he was yawning in this picture.
We saw beautiful bald eagles.
And a few lazy lions.
There was even a gator who was very interested in Fiel and Andrew... scary.
The big hit of the day had to be the stingray exhibit.
Fiel and the kids got to touch a few stingrays but I was a bit hesitant. I'm a wuss... got a problem with that, hmm? Anyway, they loved it. Even Clee had his hand in the water, reaching out and touching them which surprised me. He would have been there all day if we'd let him. 
I've said it once, and I'll say it again, this boy was meant to live near the water.

Andrew and Emme enjoyed the train ride. Clee started to enjoy himself when the ride was almost over... figures.  
A great day was had by all at the Jacksonville zoo!

It looks like fun. But where was all the rain in your photos? I thought it only rained there - that's what cnn tells me, anyway.

Looks like you had a great day at the zoo. Loved it that Clee likes the water. Andrew is wearing his GA clothing again - Go Andrew!

My mantra is: You've been to the zoo once, then you've been enough to last a lifetime. :) And, yet, the kids can never seem to get enough of the zoo. Looks like good times.
