Labor Day Zoo trip

After much needed cleaning and organizing of "The Estate" all weekend,
we spent Labor Day at the zoo, BBQing with fam, and cheering on BSU. 

Beck LOVED the zoo, although it had nothing to do with the animals. 
He just liked sitting up in his stroller like a big boy and watching all the people. 

The zoo really was a ton of fun for us though!
I won't bore you with tons of animal pics but I'll put up my favorites.
I honestly can't remember what kind of animal these were but look how much they love each other!

The giraffe's are always really cool to see.

The next picture represents the most adventurous part of the outing.
See this orangutan?  If you click on the picture, you can see that he is holding a camera in his hand. 

We were watching this Orangutan taking a walk when someone accidentally dropped their camera a few feet from him.  He found the camera right away and started playing with the lens.  The camera lens broke off and he had it in his mouth.  The people that dropped the camera just thought it was funny and walked off, but we were determined to save this animal's life!
So, we very carefully lowered Chase into the arena...
ok ok...I'm lying about that part.  BUT we did call the zoo to tell them what happened. 
Within a minute of hanging up the phone we heard a special buzz and the orangutan immediately dropped the camera and ran towards it. 
I thought it was so cool that he was so well trained to come when they called. 
So, the next time you see the Orangutan exhibit at Hogal Zoo, you have us to thank :)
