Earth Day at Buttonwood Park Zoo

Photo-A-Day #3666

We took the kids to Buttonwood Park Zoo today for Earth Day. We met up with our friends, The Walkers, there and the kids had a great time. Eva asked to take a camera with her and so I set her up with the NX30 to use to shoot with. She had so much fun taking photos of everything around the zoo. She took a couple hundred shots and many were really good. She is still rushing and not holding the camera as steady as she should but she is getting better.

Highlights from the trip were Andrew going the day in underwear without any incident, the kids pig piling onto the big pig statue and a picnic lunch over by the elephants. The kids also had a couple of carousel rides and a ride on the train.

Later we had a nice dinner out at House of Fortune.
