Boise Zoo

What'cha say? Well I can finally say I've taken my kids to a zoo. It only took 9 years! We had a blast when we went to the Boise Zoo a couple of weekends ago. It is a smaller zoo, but it really had a lot of interesting animals I've never seen or even heard of. It was inexpensive, too! Of course a zoo is any homeschooler's dream field trip. A picture is worth a thousand words. Josiah is trying on a pair of fox ears in this pic.

First time I've ever seen a red panda. I want one! They are so adorable. I'm sure they aren't as friendly as they look.

Unfortunately the groundhog exhibit was closed, but the kids still had a great time playing in the bubbles.

This was by far the weirdest animal I think I've ever seen. It is called a sloth bear. They are from Asia. Moments after this picture was taken, it attacked Hailey through the glass.  

You could pay extra to feed a giraffe. We were impressed at how long their tongues were.

 Zebras are so cool.
This strange animal looks kind of like a hare and is from South America. They are huge! Way bigger than a rabbit.

Loved this female lion who was basking on the rock like she owned the place. She was beautiful!

We also went to the Birds Of Prey Center while we were there, which was amazing. I would highly recommend it. Will post on that next. 

God Bless,

We went to the Boise Zoo while visiting our family in Idaho last summer. It was pretty good for a small zoo. They had a wonderful butterfly exhibit, and the prairie dogs and their babies were adorable!!!

Oh I love trips to the zoo. And I think your kids are the perfect age to really appreciate the animals!

What FUN! Scary that the bear was trying to attack your Hailey, though...don't you think? The top photo of Josiah is cute. :)

Blessings to you!

Camille, yes, it was definitely scary. So glad there was thick glass between her and the bear :) She got back from the glass really quick!
