Andrew's Preschool Field Trip to the Zoo

Andrew's preschool took a field trip to the zoo the last week of school. Since Emily was at home recovering from surgery, I got to take the boys on the field trip.
We've been to several zoos before, but this was our first time at the Cougar Mountain Zoo. It is a fun zoo with some cool animals, and we were able to get pretty close to most of them.
One of our favorite exhibits was the tropical bird exhibit. Not only did the birds look beautiful, they could talk.
This macaw reminds me of some birds Emily and I saw nine years ago in Venesuela.
All the kids in Andrew's class had decorated visors earlier in the week. Their teacher told them to wear them to the zoo. I was so paranoid that we would forget it and Andrew would be the only kid at the zoo without a visor. As it turns out, Andrew was the only kid who actually wore his visor to the zoo.
The zoo had several tigers. In fact, there were two different tiger enclosures. They were pretty amazing. We had a great day. --Kelly
