Great MawMaw always has to take the kids to Riverbanks Zoo when they're around. So this was our last outing before our summer together was over.
Cort has a conversation with a baby Galapagos tortoise.
The giraffe exhibit was my favorite part of the trip.
Except that Hayes was in a mood
She wasn't going to give me a smile even for a baby giraffe.
We always have to visit the statue of Happy the tiger. Happy was the zoo's first tiger ... in fact, I think the zoo happened just because of Happy. She was down at the Exxon car wash for years and my grandmother always took me to see her when I came over on weekends.
Hard to see this caiman but this is what snapped Hayes out of her mood ... just show her a reptile!
