Binder Park Zoo has an Australia that you take a ride to or you can walk to get there. This is where you can see the Giraffes, Turtles, Monkeys, and some other cool animals. We took the ride up and we were disappointed because most of the animals up there were not out. There was some monkeys out but not all of them.
Binder Park has a children's petting zoo. This is where the little ones can feed and pet the goats. They have donkey's, rabbitts and other small animals. Riley went inside to pet the goats but once he was in there he wasn't into petting them.
I saved my favorites for last. I love the prairie dogs. I love to sit and watch these little guys. They run all over and seem to be full of energy. Joshua enjoyed watching them too. We didn't get to see tons of them like normal but I do believe the weather was not so warm to them. Today was the first day I hear Lemur's make a nose. These little guys are my favorite also. We also got to see some bear. The bear's were not to active so we were not able to see them two well but I did get a picture of them.
Here is some pictures of the kids on a stone turtle. I would recommend if you go to this zoo to make sure you go in the middle of summer. This will give you a full day of family fun and you will get your money's worth. The kids had fun but I was still disappointed with the amount of animals that were not availabe to us. I know that the animals were kept inside for there health so it would not have been so bad if they would of let us in for half the cost. Another thing that really shocked me was, after paying $50.00 for 4 people they still ask you if you want to donate to help feed the animals. I am going to finish this up with a few more pictures. Our trip to Michigan was a cold one and I am so happy to be back home. I will be posting more of our trip to Michigan.
The kids had fun, we didn't freeze too bad so it was not all bad. Have plenty more coming from our trip to Michigan. So stay tuned.
