Trip to the Good Zoo

The kids and I went on an awesome field trip with our homeschool 4H club to the Olgebay Good Zoo. It was for Blakes Herpetology class but all the kids go to enjoy the field trip. I sometimes cant believe what Chloe does for a good photo-op!!!

Paul was so interested in this class, he did drop a snake on the floor one time because he was so nervous!!

Camye loves to play at the Imagine Vet Hospital. She loves to take care of animals.

Nathan Barkey, Paul and his fave webkinz Chocolate Bar and Blake watching the snakes and teachers!!

Amelia, Ashlee and Camye.

Blake was having a blast with his friends!!

Paul posing in front of the lillies..I need to get down a little earlier next year because they were all about gone.!!!

Trip to Pittsburgh Zoo

Last Saturday we headed to the zoo with several friends from church!! It was a lot of fun..but very HOT!! We are all a little spoiled with having such a great summer that when it got to the 90’s for one week we all were ready for Fall.

Below is a picture of the shark tunnel…it is new at the zoo this year. It is really neat!! Our new family picture was taken in the same spot.

Below is one of the few pictures I have of Chloe at the zoo. She stayed a bit ahead of us with some of her friends. That is a monkey peaking over the tree at us.

We got to see the lions at an awesome time. But this lion was growling at the crowd. It went for several minutes….very neat.

Below is a place to measure how tall you to an elephant or a giraffe. Or Ben Roethlisberger …of course…only in Pittsburgh..LOL!!

Paul and his little friend Hannah pulling him along….

I think the polar bears were the best thing to see at the zoo!! They kept swimming around and we could watch them!!! They are soo cute…behind glass walls of course!!

Camye on a camel…

Kiddy Kingdom…here Paul comes!!

Olgebay Good Zoo

Well I have been going field trip crazy here!! But we are having so much fun!:)We decided to purchase a zoo pass this year. Thursday we headed to the Olgebay Good Zoo, it is a very nice little zoo and only about 20 minutes from our house

They have a little animal hospital that the kids loved doctoring up there animals there.:)

They had this bird aviar that was really awesome..the birds were landing all over us!!

Paul and Camye were so nervous to let a bird land on them but they did it!!! IT was really cool!:)

Blake was a little nervous as well but did great:) Thanks to my friend Sandra that was helping them with the birds.

The zoo had just got in a 18 foot python….very…big..:)

It was great fun and counts as school. We did find out that starting in 7th grade they have a volunteer program. Chloe is VERY interested in this, so we will see if she decides to do this.:)
