First we wanted to see the new polar bear exhibit. On the way to that area, we stopped at the petting zoo to see the goats. Our animal-lover Isabelle has always loved this area where they get to brush the goats. Seth got in on the action and Parker seemed to enjoy watching the animals.

We took a train ride. Isabelle and Seth sat in the last seat which faces backwards.
We discovered a new polar play area...
|Parker always laughs on slides|
|Parker crawled up the steps on his own|
Saw a very large brown bear...
Compared our heights to several different kinds of bears...
And finally saw the polar bears. There are 2 polar bears that swim and play with each other and a floating toy. There is an underwater viewing area that's really neat, but we didn't get any pictures of that :(
Our last area was Jungle Jack's Landing. Here they have rides designed for kids, and "big kids" can enjoy them too :) This was perfect because there were no lines this day!

|This ride went straight up high, then bounced up and down|
|Isabelle and I rode in the seat closest to the end of the ship (too dark to see us here, but we're in there!)|

Parker had some snacks while Brother and Sister rode the rides...
Seth and Shane braved the log ride. They used their jackets for coverage, but still got soaked!
