I know I keep posting about our one trip to the zoo over a week ago, but there was just so much activity Anna June packed in one day, it is worth showing off. AJ loves the kangaroo area. They have kangaroos, wallabies, and geese in an Australian-themed section. It is really nice. But something new we'd never done before is the "Wallaby Walkabout". I don't know if they do it every day, but at 10:30 on that particular Saturday, we could get in to walk inside the kangaroo/wallaby enclosure. You have to stay on the path, and the animals were eating, so they were fairly preoccupied. I'm just glad 20+ people don't watch us eat breakfast every Saturday!
You can't pet them, but you can get very close! While we were waiting to be let in, AJ and Ben took advantage of the "Aboriginal" area where you could draw on the cave wall, and AJ loved putting on the mining hat to go in and see the smaller animals (like a toad and an enormous crayfish) in the "down under" area.
