Rockin' the Road: Zoology Edition Part 1

    Okay, I promised more pictures! This is our trip to the local zoo while in the Quad Cities, that my uncle showed us, with his two kids. This was an awesome trip, we enjoyed it so much. What was suprising was that it coincided with a free day, and it honestly seemed like all the schools in the area had emptied to take smart advantage. Wow. This was one busy, busy day. You can only imagine what it was like, waiting in line for the train.
  And we almost got squashed like bugs in the shop.

  Before I forget, I want to let y'all know that I will be sharing an interview with Rachel from Hippie In Heels soon, so keep an eye out for that! It will be worth it. I've been following her blog for awhile now, and I'm always taken in by her funny stories, her good tips, and bright and happy pictures. It's always fun to visit--and like I said, she gives a lot of good travel tips. She is currently living in India, which has been fun to see her post about!

  So here are the pics! Enjoy! (This will be done in several parts, as there are so many photos).

Well, isn't he having a good morning.

Pining for a snack?

I thought this was so cool--the serpent in the water. Giving me ideas if ever I have money to spare.

Not sure, but I think he's trying to look cute. "Maybe the tiny juicy kid will come closer if I'm in this pose."

Petting zoo. As usual, mom did not let go of the opinion that goats are evil. "No touching." In the petting zoo. Am I the only one getting a chuckle from that?

Niabi Zoo Quad Cities
"I am ROYALTY. You may not touch."

Niabi Zoo Quad Cities
"Ii can't even look at you."

Oh--oh--I'm stuck! These lambs are just TOO CUTE! I really wish we had been able to stay longer. I think I want a pet lamb--no, two! I'll name one Mutton, and the other Chop Chop.

Still in the petting zoo. This one had a sign that said, "May bite". Uh...yeah. I'll keep the elementary rule of "hands to yourself" on this one.

I was ecstatic to get these shots! This is in a large enclosure, with different viewing platforms. It was quite cool.

This was quite beautiful. I enjoyed it very much! Carousels are so intriguing. I've had thoughts on story elements that I could use inspired by carousels.

  Hope you enjoyed those. Will be sharing more soon, as well as pictures of the sunrise over the Mississippi. It was so beautiful...and so COLD. I deserved those shots I got. Meaning the pictures. Yes, the pictures.
