A day at the zoo!

Last week when we were in Salt Lake, we decided to take Emmy to Hogle Zoo. We met some friends there, Ammon, Tasha and Izzy, and set off for an animal adventure! We had a lot of fun but it was blazing hot!!! Emmy's poor little cheeks were so red. We saw a bunch of animals, rode the carousel and the train. Funny story: Emmy started picking up garbage off the ground when we got off the train. A man that worked at the zoo came up to us and gave us a free ride on the train since Emmy was helping out! What a great helper :) And, of course, she and Izzy had a lot of fun getting wet and playing with the big stone water ball.

Looking at the elephants
Family pic in front of the big elephant. It makes these loud elephant noises - Emmy loved it!
Right before riding the carousel
Emmy got to ride on the panda - she was so excited! She kept saying "panda! panda!" She loves pandas ever since we took her to see Kung Fu Panda.
She wasn't too happy about getting off the carousel
Riding the train and sucking all the germs off the rail - yuck!!!
The poor red cheeks!
Playing at the water ball w/ Izzy (in the pink tank top)
Getting her hands wet! It was a nice way to cool off after walking around in the 100 + degree heat!
