Ft. Wayne Children's Zoo

Shane's been getting some good vacation time in (remember that he was gone for like 2 months in the spring? Praise the Lord for vacation!) We were gifted some zoo tickets and decided to make a fun family day out of it. We didn't tell Grace where we were going. We brought a picnic and ate it outside the zoo. She didn't guess until we were right at the gate!
It was a perfect day, warm and not crowded.
Gracie got to feed the giraffe! They were pretty far away but one came up and ate a piece of lettuce right from her hands. It was very cool!
This peacock wanted to snack on Graham's forgotten crackers.

I love that the crowds weren't big so Graham could walk on his own. He is everywhere!

We took a train ride which was very fun for all of us.
Grace and I fed the geese (mean, greedy creatures. ha!) She loved it but didn't like it at the same time. Then we went to feed the goats. There was only one in the yard so I wasn't too worried.... Well... more came when they smelled the food. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves!

It was a great day!
