John and I took the boys to the Santa Barbara Zoo while we were in Carpinteria. It really is a great zoo, although you can definitely spend a ton of money once you get in the park if you want to (feeding the giraffes-$6, feeding the barnyard animals-$2, feeding the penguins-$10, riding the train-$4.50). Henry, of course, wanted to do all of these things, but he got over it and managed to enjoy the animals without all of the extras.
When we first arrived we went into the bird exhibit and saw these 2 turtles walking across the cement. Henry LOVED them and watched them walk for a good long while...
Charlie was pretty fascinated with them too...
Of course, just like last year, sliding down the hill on a piece of cardboard was a bit hit with Henry...
Fun Day! We can't wait to go back again next year with Levi!
