Joel loves to look at pictures of things we've done, so posting zoo pictures here is a great way to show him later.
I always like the giraffes. Such cool creatures.
I learned that they often see danger before other animals (in the wild) so they are often watched by the other animals as a warning system.
Joel wanted to see the zebras. Well, Brookfield zoo has a zebra (not zebras), but here he/she is.
Not sure if it's the best idea to let Joel climb on the fence, but there weren't signs saying not to (and he didn't fall).
Grizzly bear that was saying hi and smiling for cameras.
This peacock was playing peek-a-boo with Joel.
A different peacock that Joel was befriending.
Some female gorillas
Joel took this picture of the lioness (awake) and the lion (sleeping on the right).
My little monkey on the lion statue.
Joel took this picture of the wind chimes at the entrance/exit of the zoo. He did a pretty good job!
