we had to see the lions first, they are Anna's favorite, or they were that day. i would show a picture of the lion, but he was sunning himself spread eagle. some may find it a little obscene.
the best part about the Phoenix zoo is they're petting area, at least for my kids. they love to brush all the little goats. i have to do my best to pretend it doesn't totally gross me out.
a funny side note, before we got in the car i realized it had been a while since Anna went potty, so i made her go in the dirt. she was thrilled. she said, "look dad, i'm going just like a doggie!" too funny!
