You might remember a recent post about Benton's first visit to the zoo. Well we had to go back so Dallin could go for the first time, at least to the Oregon zoo. We went early to beat the crowd and it seemed like we were always one stop ahead of the groups. It was great!
We decided to start at the opposite end of the zoo this time. That way Benton could see different animals (since he can't quite make it through the whole zoo yet). And this half of the zoo had larger animals, so he could see them better.
One of our first stop were the polar bears. They were playing which made them fun to watch.
Polar bears are huge!
When we walked up to these Malayan bears Benton said, "Dog, dog". I think everything might be a dog to him, he saw a cat and called it a dog.
We love that the lions are back at the zoo! How can you have a zoo without lions?

I loved the giraffes, I always forget how big they are!
Have you been to lorikeet landing? There is a little area in the zoo that is enclosed that has many lorikeets inside. You can get some nectar in a cup and they will come up to you and drink it. Benton was so interested.
It was a fun day at the zoo, we were happy to have Dallin come with us.
