First we looked at the giraffes. Then we made the animal show just in time, and I saw the biggest rabbit I have ever seen! We continued down the trail . . .

We saw the baby komodo dragon. Caden was scared but we told him it couldn't get him because of the glass. But it tried! Next thing we knew, it jumped off the tree straight at Caden, smacked into the window, and fell. After that, Caden was terrified of the rest of the reptile/bug exhibit and fake animal statues.
Finally we got to the petting zoo and farm. In October, Caden loved the petting zoo at the pumpkin patch, but this time he was scared. In fact, a lot of things he wasn't scared of before he is now. I hope it's a passing phase.
We then went on the tropical trail and visited the monkey village, a giant caged area you can walk through as monkeys swing around you. Or not. We only saw one on our way in and one on the way out. They were little and cute.
We passed by the camel ride and the boys wanted to go. Caden was so excited! He may not like petting animals, but he sure does love riding them!
