Zoo Boise


A few years back we took the kids to the Zoo in Boise and they whined the whole time because it was "too hot." We reluctantly decided to try again and I'm glad we did, the zoo has changed a lot since we last visited, there was very little whining and we had a fun day together.
The kids rode the little merry go round...even Reed who was embarrassingly too big for the kiddie ride.
They are checking out the Red Pandas which surprisingly looked a lot like a red North American raccoon...Kraig said "that's probably what eats people's cat food in China." We, obviously have a little raccoon problem in our neighborhood.

The kids favorite thing, hands down was the giant tortoise...they would like to get one for our back yard. Apparently we need to move to the Galapagos Islands.

The Galapagos Islands are the most incredible living museum of evolutionary changes, with a huge variety of exotic species (birds, land animals, plants) and landscapes not seen anywhere else.
