Amaya loves going to the zoo and loved it even more having her grandparents along!
Just like last year, the zoo was decorated for autumn.
Finally Amaya is tall enough and confident enough to play at the Woodland Adventures.
Since there are two playgrounds at the zoo, we had to limit our time there. But if Amaya had her way and if it wasn't quite as warm, she just might have wanted to play there all day.
We were a little disappointed that so many exhibits were closed and under construction. We figured with it closing in on the end of the busy season, it's probably the best time to do maintenance, repairs, and work on new exhibits.
However, we still were able to see most of our favorite animals.
We love visiting the zoo in the fall for several reasons. Tt's not quite as busy - at times we felt like we had the zoo to ourselves. And we love seeing the vibrant colors of the changing leaves.
Amaya was cranked out for the first few hours - we think she was just too hot. But after playing at another playground, for whatever reason, she changed her attitude and the remainder of our time at the zoo was much more enjoyable.
These are a few of my favorite pictures from the day.
She loves her daddy a lot!
Steve's favorite exhibits are the tigers and we got to see one up close.
One of my favorites are the wolves.
Amaya, Grandma, and Grandpa
We were quickly running out of time since the zoo is back to their off season hours, but we were still able to get through the last trail - the Tropics Trail.
Thank you Mom and Dad for a wonderful day and for sharing the awesome pictures!
