Fun at the Zoo

Dave's brother Matt has been in town this week so we've been doing all sorts of fun things. Today we went to the Bronx Zoo, which we've been to but not in a couple of years. It's a beautiful zoo with some great exhibits. My favorites were the Jungle Monorail (which takes you on a ride above Asian animals) and the Gorilla exhibit. Emma was a trooper. She took maybe a 20 minute snooze in her stroller but was up and looking the entire time, though I think she found the people more interesting than the animals. Here are some pictures from our day:

How do we compare to a tiger? Me, Emma, tiger, Matt

Baby gorilla!

PS. For those of you locals, I became a member of the zoo and can bring up to two guests, so let me know if you want to go! (Ditto for the Central Park Zoo and the Aquarium).

What cute pictures! Babies in pouches...heehee. I loved reading about your roomies wedding and your fun trip. It's great that the friendships we make in college can be so lasting.

I'm glad you liked the Bronx zoo. It's been on our list of things to go do but haven't gotten there yet. We'll have to put that on the top of our list!

It looks like you had a great week with Matt there. He has really been looking forward to visiting you guys. Emma has such a fun smile and seems so interested and cheerful. We can hardly stand waiting three more weeks to meet her! I remember two really nice times with you at the Bronx Zoo. I liked the seals and walruses. How fun! You are a wonderful tour guide, Jess!
