Point Defiance Zoo

"How many are your works, Lord! In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your 
creatures."  - Psalm 104:24

Today we took Joshua for his first trip to the zoo. It felt so good to spend all afternoon outdoors walking about. Although, a trip to the zoo on the first sunny Saturday in months was not a very original idea; it really draws the crowds and we had to wait in line a long time just to gain admission, but once we were inside we had a lovely time and I was able to capture some amazing photos.

Joe loves it when I ask total strangers to take our family photo ;)

The tiger cubs were my favorite!

Adult tiger.

This was also Jael's first trip to the zoo.
We brought her along for her birthday and the tigers were her favorite animal too.

Joshua was fascinated the entire time. This was pretty much the look on his face the whole time we were at the zoo. "Ooooo..."

Red Wolf.

Arctic Fox (too cute!)

Polar Bear.

A sleepy Muskox.

Sea Otter.

We wrapped up the day with a ride on the carousel- I think this my have been Jael's most favorite moment of the day!

"All creatures look to you to give them their food at the proper time. When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things." - Psalm 104:27-28
