Sunday at the Zoo

My office buys annual membership zoo passes for a few privileged people (that would include me). And we've been a few times.. but not enough... so this afternoon we took Ben. And the kid LOVED IT... granted you've all seen the pics of him at the zoo this year.. but this time we went to "The Kingdom of the Nights" which is below the "Desert Dome" and its full of bats, alligators, snakes, turtles, and all kinds of other night time animals. He was a little freaked out when we got too close to the glass when the snakes were actually moving.. but for the most part it was cool...
We also got to see the 4mo old baby Siberian tigers and their 3-legged momma... (not sure of the significance in that information but the zoo decided it was significant enough to post- so I did too :D )... And for the first time in ALL of our zoo patronage.. we rode the steam engine train.... I wish I would have had a camera for this one instance only.... When Ben finally realized that we were telling him he was ON A TRAIN - and we were going to RIDE THE TRAIN.. the kids smile got HUGE and he was ecstatic.. HE LOVED the train... (don't know where he got that from)...

His favorite toy of the week - His handmade prized wooden truck from Uncle Bill...
He will even tell you "uncle bill truck - not uncle pete" *shrugs shoulders* - who really understands why???
