One of Pixxa's favorite things to do is to visit the zoo. Earlier this month, she and husband Michael took a wintery trip to Bookfield Zoo. Here are a few pix from their day.
Arriving at the zoo. Brookfield Zoo is one of the better know zoos in the country.
Pixxa: We're here! Come on Michael!
Michael: Hey---it's this way. Through the tunnel to the animals.
Michael: Look at that big camel! And you think they only live in the dessert.
Pixxa: Look at the cute little bird!
Michael: A wombat...how cool!
Pixxa: Look over there at the zebra.
Michael: (laughing) He wants in...it's too cold out here!
Zebra: Let me in!
Pixxa: Look, the stream is frozen over.
Pixxa's favorite - the giraffes.
Pixxa: Hi cutie!
Michael: Lions and tigers and bears...
Pixxa: oh my!

Michael: Is that a wolf?
Pixxa: Look at that big polar bear. He's not white anymore.
Michael: I know...he kind of blends in with the rocks.
Micael: Let's pet the peacocks.
Pixxa: You go right ahead!
Pixxa: Let's see the dolphin show.
Michael: Hey, that one's name is Tatem.
Pixxa: What a fun day!
Michael: Yes, but I'm getting hungry. It's too bad they don't have any consession stands open in the winter.
Pixxa: I know. Some hot chocolate would be lovely!
Pixxa: Look...one of Santa's reindeer.
Pixxa: Stop it...he's looking right at you!
Michael: He's beautiful...let's get closer.
Pixxa: Oh my, this is pretty close. I sure hope that glass is thick!
Pixxa: awww...no carousel ride either. Oh well. I guess it's time to go.
Michael: Okay...I'm cold and hungry, but it was a nice day at the zoo!
