A Visit to the Toledo Zoo

Hi all!  As a field trip, Elizabeth and I went to the Toledo zoo yesterday.
 We started on north (bottom) side, in the Arctic Encounter.
"Where are the seals?" I asked.
"Be patient.  You'll see them in a minuet." my sister told me.
 "Good, there one is." I said, snapping a picture.
 The polar bear cubs were very entertaining.  I was standing with my back to the thick glass when Elizabeth suddenly pointed behind me.
"He's right behind you!" she said.  I screamed, and jumped back, only to remember that the polar bear was on the other side of the wall.
Next we stopped at the Africa exhibit.

 Where we rode a educational train ride.

 On our ride, an ostrich walked right next to the fence, when Elizabeth snapped this great picture.
The train ticket included a ride on the carousel.
But instead of boring horses, this zoo carousel let you ride upon many different animals.  I chose the zebra.
We headed to the opposite side of the zoo.
"Smile, Chrissa." Elizabeth encouraged as she raised out camera to her eyes to take a picture.  "It's not working."  Checking the battery power, Elizabeth found that the battery was dead.
"It's dead?" I asked.
"Dead as a doorknob dead." my sister replied, her smile gone.
"We haven't charged the battery for a while." I said. "I should have checked it before we left." I added sadly.  Even though we were without camera battery, Elizabeth and I still had a great time at the Toledo Zoo.
Do you like zoos?
P.S. This is our 100th post!
