The Zoo

Last week Wednesday, most of our family went to the Oregon Zoo with Grandma. I took about 357 photos :) Here are a few of the best ones (I don't have time to write much, so I'll just post the photos). They have cougars now, but we couldn't see them... :(


Sea Otter

Sun Bear

Peregrine Falcon


American Kestrel (sooo cute!)

Harris Hawk
Golden Eagle

Bald Eagle
Great Horned Owl
Blue Macaw
Peacock
Wood Duck
It actually cost less to buy a year-round pass than to pay for one trip with all the kids! There are many advantages to being in a large family. :)

Too bad you dislike dachshunds, Peter...guess what kind of dog my very close relation wants to obtain. :D Don't they make you hungry every time you see one?

Thanks. But you're all wrong about Dachsunds.
