Thank you so much for the gift of $$$ that was sent our way. We really have a great life and it feels very full and fun. But thanks to those generous individuals we were able to buy a seasons pass to the Miami Metro Zoo. We are very excited.
Thank you so much!

So the zoo is HUGE and with a 2 and 4 year old you don't move very fast. So all in all we say maybe 5 animals, about a 5% of the animals there. I was really excited about the flamingos!!! They ween't very pink though. Turns out they turn pink because of the special little shrimp they eat in the wild. The amount of pink depends on the amount of shrimp. Always learning new things here on the Sparks blog. I was still so thrilled I almost jumped into the water for an up close and personal looks!
Just kidding!! I don't think I've ever seen water that green before.

Here's Isaac and Sydney in a Huge birds nest statue. Not more to say here.
Isaac and Sydney playing on the Elephant statue. We actually did get to see the real thing. Next time we go we're going to rent a 2 man bike thingy. It has a place for the kids to sit in the very front while the parents, side by side peddle. They're $$$ but well worth it. We might make it to the giraffes and their feeding station.

We stuck around long enough to see the Diego show. But I'm afraid it pushed the kids to the limit. They calmed down to watch the show and then started up again as soon as it was over. Isaac actually wasn't too bad but Sydney was beat and NOT happy.
