Woodland Park Zoo

Today we went to the Woodland Park Zoo with some of our friends and we had a great time. The weather was great today with the sun shinning and just a little breeze. My friend has a large van so we were able to all ride together, which was fantastic.
This guy was just hanging out by the picnic area eating everyone's dropped food. He was literally close enough to eat out of my hand. I had to fight every urge to pick him up! LOL
Joshua's second favorite lizard: The Komodo Dragon
(his first favorite is the bearded dragon)
We went into one of the bird exhibits where you can purchase a feeding stick that the birds will land on and eat off of. It was a big hit!
My friends daughter was able to get one of these Cockatiels (?) to land on hers and Joshua spent the whole time trying to get the Macaw to land on his, but it would just bite off all the seeds and stay on it's branch.
I just love Zaccheaus and all his goofy expressions!

All in all it was a great day and the boys are already planning their next trip. LOL!

Looks like a fun trip! We enjoy visiting our local zoo. Unfortunately they don't have any hands-on exhibits like your birds.

It was a lot of fun!! The girls loved the new stuff we haven't seen before and the peacock was Melia's favorite. They are planning our next rip also. I have promised them next time we go we will go into the play area. Why they would want to do that I may never understand.
