the monkeys at the zoo..

Yesterday we took the kids for the big day out to the Melbourne Zoo. Matt took these beautiful photo's of the lemurs, and many more (so did the kids).

The kids loved the lemurs, otters, meerkats, all the monkeys, seals and penguins. We didn't even make it all the way around the zoo before closing time.

I couldn't resist this pic.. near the Elephants. Happy and tired family at the end of the day.

I love the lemurs. I could stand and watch them all day with their long spindly fingers and stripy tails!

What's going on with that baby elephant? Has it arrived?

Wooonderful pictures! I don't know that I've ever seen a lemur, but they are so curious-looking.

So sweet! I can't wait until I get the chance to go back to Melbourne Zoo! It's been...15 years!! I bet it's changed since I was there! Do they have the snake room anymore?
I was only little when I was there, and my parents bought me a beautiful big black jaguar soft toy. I still have him and he's just gorgeous!!

I haven't been to the zoo for years and after seeing your photos I want to go right now! Rachel, I introduced myself to Ayden yesterday when he came into the library when I was working there; what a nice young man he is.
