Daddy surprised Dacia Grace with a grip to the Oregon Zoo as the first field trip of the year. We packed a lunch and left early so that we could spend the entire day at the zoo. Upon arrival instead of going left like normal we went right. This allowed us to see many zoo animals in the morning that we would normally see in the late afternoon or not at all because they don't like the hot afternoon sun.
We were disappointed to miss the wolves and the meercats as the exhibits were no longer on display. But we sure enjoyed the African Crested Porcupines. But, they were not very cooperative about being photographed. ;) By the time we arrived home that day, we were "pooped puppies" as Dacia Grace says. We had so much fun that day!
Here is Amur Leopard enjoying the cool morning on its heated rock bed. Also Dacia Grace tracking the footprints to the next exhibit.
