Our trip to the OKC zoo.

Our family has had a tradition the last few years of visiting the zoo during Spring Break. We've been to the Sedgwick County Zoo in Witchita a couple of times and even to Springfield-which is an awesome zoo if you ever get the chance to visit. Last year, with all the moving craziness, we weren't able to make the trip. So, when I heard that the OKC zoo had opened a new dinosaur exhibit, I knew we had to go this year!

We had a great time! The weather Saturday was kind of cool and overcast. We had to wear our jackets most of the day, but the rain held off and it turned out to be a really good day for the zoo.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures:

The kids with the dinosaur at the entrance to the zoo(Dakota was really excited about that part).

Everyone got to choose a really cool endangered animal on the carosel.

The train (Landon's favorite).

Riding the 'tortoise".

Kiddos taming the "lions"

Cheyenne comparing her hand to a black bear's paw.

We had a truly wonderful day. And to top it all off, at the end of the day, we were able to buy a family membership to the zoo-something I have always wanted to do but never was able. All of our hard work, tears, and prayers over the last year have truly been worth it. What a difference a year can make!
