Binder Park {Zoo}

Last Wednesday we made a trip to Battle Creek to visit Binder Park Zoo! It was such a blast, the boys did great and Grayden loved it!

On the way home I asked Grayden what his favorite part of the zoo was and he said “the animals!” haha! My favorite part was feeding the giraffes! They were so cool!

Funny story: On the way down there I realized my camera could be running low on batteries, it never gives me much warning so I always like to take an extra set along with me on important things, like trips to the zoo, but I didn’t have any! Robb was so kind to make a stop at Wal-Mart on the way so I could pick some up. Sadly they didn’t have the batteries I like ( lithium, they last so much longer) so I settled for the normal kind and hurried back to the car.

A half hour later I picked up my camera to delete some pictures to make room on the memory card only to find out I didn’t have the card in my camera!! I had left it in my computer at the cottage an hour away! I was so bummed but at this point there was nothing I could do, we were almost to the zoo and it was my own fault. I was disappointed but determined to have a great time and capture the memories in my head!

Robb so sweetly asked the ticket lady at the zoo where he could get a SD card and she directed him to another Wal-Mart just a few minutes away. Me and the boys watched the kangaroos and I fed Sadler while we waited for him to get back!

SO thankful to have these pictures!

Looks like such a fun zoo especially for Grayden's age! And by the way, when did your hair get so long??! I love it! You may have to do another hair how-to post/video to let us in on your secrets! Thanks!!
