We went to the zoo between Christmas and New Years when our friends were in town visiting and had a great time. My favorite part about the adventure was playing with my new camera and being able to capture moments that I have never before been able to capture (my other camera was way too slow!). I can't wait to see some of the pictures that Rebeka took at the zoo because I might actually be in some of them!
I just love the look on James' face in this one! The last time I took him in to feed the birds he was a little spooked by them and I didn't get to take any pictures because I was holding him. Kirstyn was also very proud that she was able to get two of them to eat at the same time.
When they road the train, I decided to get a little extra exercise and make it easier on everyone by walking back to the front pushing the stroller and pulling the wagon. I stopped along the way and waited for them to come by on the train so that I could snap a few pictures from a distance!
And wow, just look at these animals. They look like they are looking right back at me! Now I know why there are so many people wandering around the zoo with tripods and huge cameras. It is so much fun to try to capture just the right shot! I can't wait to see improvements in my photography skills the next time we venture out to the zoo!
