Zoo Montana

Yesterday, Jason had to pick up some parts in Billings for work. We decided to make a day of it and take the girls to Zoo Montana. I really love Jason's job for the freedom that he has to do something like that! The girls were so excited to see a bear and a tiger. I must admit that I was a little disappointed with the zoo. I guess I was expecting to see more exotic animals, but despite that it was still a very good time.

Lindsey was excited to be going.
Megan was excited, but tired.
Siberian Tiger
For some reason Lindsey was really afraid of the tiger. She thought it was going to get her even though we told her he couldn't get through the glass.
Megan loved the tiger. She kept waving to him.

We decided that we had gone to the zoo at a great time. Being the end of the summer season, there were hardly any people there. We practically had the whole zoo to ourselves. It was almost closing time, and the zookeepers were getting ready to feed all of the animals. The tiger was pacing back and forth and all of the animals were pretty active waiting for their food to arrive.

We decided to go to Chuck E. Cheese's for dinner because we thought the kids would have a great time. We told Lindsey that it was "Where a kid could be a kid" and she kept repeating that line to us. Both girls had a great time playing on the rides and going in the "Sky Tubes". We even won a few tickets to earn some prizes for the girls. It was a fun afternoon!

Megan and Lindsey. They loved how this ride moved. After dinner, we gave Lindsey a few tokens to do what she wanted with. She pumped all of her tokens into this ride.

What a fun day! I am happy that you got to go with Jason since he has been away on the weekends. I also love the pictures of your girls in camo. Very cute!

We took Jake and Shanell's kids to the zoo in Montana after we were first married. Josh and I were also very disappointed too! But the kids were happy with the chickens!
