The Zoo!

We have been having a lot of fun at the zoo :) The Chiang Mai Zoo is a really fun zoo. It's very unique too. It's up on the side of a mountain, so unless you want to really exhaust yourself, you can take the tram around the zoo to the different spots to see the different animals. These are pictures from our first zoo trip :)

Aashini thought the ostriches were funny :)
Aashini got to feed the elephant! She thought it was so fun!!
At first she was scared to feed him....
... and dropped the cucumber before it even got to his trunk :)
She got braver as time went on and had a great time :)
Have you ever seen the back of a zebra before? I didn't realize their backs looked like this - cool hunh?
They had pony rides at the zoo too... Aashini was scared of the pony and grabbed onto the man leading the pony and wouldn't let go :) haha!
Aashini loves panda bears. We went to the special Panda exhibit. This panda was really funny. He sat in his "easy chair" and ate carrots :)
Aashini liked him :)
She tried on this hat at the gift shop :) haha!
Adam took this picture at the Koala exhibit... he said it was a straight picture... what do you think? :)
Diya has been having at great time at the zoo :) She doesn't seem to notice or care about the animals, but she loves being out and about ;)
Here are a couple of pictures from our 2nd zoo day. I didn't take many pictures because we spent most of our time at the aquarium that day and it was super dark inside. If you look at Aashini in that picture you can see the water bottle around her neck. At the first tram stop at the zoo, there is a 7-11. They LOVE 7-11 here - it's funny :) Anyway, we usually stop at the 7-11 and get drinks to take with us. Aashini loves the waterbottles with the straps because she can wear it around her neck and drink whenever she wants :) She thinks it's so cool :)
At the end of the day, they're exhausted :) On this zoo day, Aashini could not stay awake and we had to carry her out :) Go Adam Go!

Who knew elephants ate cucumbers? I sure didn't!
And that's a great Super Dad picture!

That last picture is so fun!
Is this place different than the elephant park where the elephants paint pictures?
Also... there's a zoo tram stop at 7-11?! HA!

I remember the fun of taking my girls to the Phoenix zoo when they were little. We went one day then did the whole thing over again in two weeks, My mom said we go the first time to see what we want to do, then go back and do it.
