Spontaneous Family Day

Friday we took one last spontaneous family day before the kids go back to school this week. We drove a couple hours South to the Louisville, KY Zoo. Here are some of the highlights:
It was so hot! Thank goodness for the spray park!

Family portrait...
The gorillas were so funny. Literally 10 seconds after this was taken, the gorilla did a disgusting trick on purpose, causing all the onlookers to go "ugh!" Too gross to mention, but really pretty funny.

Chief and I pet a Cashmere goat as Captain looks on.
Can you see this goat waving? Very cute.
This angora goat has a face only a mother could love. He was just sheared a few days earlier.
Ahh, gratuitous giraffe photo. This baby was born last month! Amazing.
Halfway home we stopped for a festival along the Ohio River and watched the boats and had ice cream.
