~An Argentine zoo trip~

~We found out that the zoo was within walking distance...well "45 min. walking distance" =)...of our house so decided to take our kids there for a field trip.  We were delighted to find out when we got there that all children under 12 were FREE!  Yea!  So we only had to pay for Kimberly, Phillip and I.  =)  This is the pretty pond/fountain we saw when we first got into the zoo.~
~A seal.  Poor one...it was blind in one eye.~
~Here we are watching people feeding the seals.~
~Sarah and Noah enjoying watching the Polar bear.~
~3 Lions.  Can you imagine what Daniel felt like being put down in the den with these "kitty cats?"  I'm SO GLAD we are serving Daniel's God!~
~Mr. Elephant~
~Phillip and I with Mr. Elephant behind us.~
~A camel.  Not one of the best looking animals that God created. ;-)~
~Elijah really liked these Reindeer.~
~A pretty colored Toucan.~
~Our family in the zoo!~
~Mr. Giraffe~
~2 animals locking horns.~
~We purchased pizza and empanadas for our lunch and we had some snacky items with us too.  Here Mary is enjoying a choc. cookie. =)~
~These animals are kin to the rabbit only with longer legs.  They were EVERYWHERE in the zoo.~
~Then right before we left we bought some ice cream to cool us off...~
~And Phillip and the kids played with the bubble blower that our land lady had purchased for our kids!  It was a very fun day.   Then we walked the 45 mins. back home. =)

Your Zoo post is so fun ! I love your outit and your super cute sandles ....little Mary is so sweet ...she sure enjoyed her cookie ! How neat to ind that the cost entrance into the zoo would be much lower then expected .

Glad for the zoo trip! I tried to look at those animals through the eyes of the little ones. To me the zoo is smelly, especially on hot days but seeing them through the eyes of you children helped this Moma to have a fun time too! What made you think that Little Mary was enjoying her cookie! ;-) It was good seeing the delight on the faces of the kids and Daddy and Mommy having a good time. Love, Moma

Thanks for stopping by my blog, via Krystal's blog. Indeed we were at Montezuma, and I definitely remember you and your family from there, though I think you might have a couple more kids since I saw you all. Also, I believe your family came to Beavertown God's Missionary church on deputation, while I attended there.
Blessings,
Martha

It's fun for me to get to see the different cultures through your blog! Thanks for sharing! I will also be praying for that little baby boy as God brings him to mind, that God would heal him n make him into His man! Love, Hannah Klunder
PS. We had a safe trip! Praise the LORD!

Going to a zoo is one of my favorite outings! The kids eating their ice creams were cute. You could tell they were enjoying them to the maximum! Smile.
The ankles on that camel reminded me of myself. A big body trying to balance on bony ankles! Ha!
Now that zoo had some awesome animals! The white lions, the polar bear, the camel, the long-legged rabbits, and the big elephant were exotic animals that were fun to see in these pictures. What fun for your children but what a looong walk for all of you. Each of you should have great stamina when it comes to taking long walks because you have exercised your legs so much!
All of you were beautiful to my eyes and heart in these pictures.
Love, Mom D
