Toronto Zoo

We took the kids up to Toronto for a few days to relax, enjoy and just be together. We headed up on Sunday and spent Sunday night at the hotel then Monday we went to the Toronto Zoo WHAT A FABULOUS TIME! The zoo was clean, the animals were well kept and the park itself was beautiful! they had plants that were indigenous to each region....they had benches and picnic areas, clean restrooms that were always close by and the people were very friendly. I took way too many photos but I wanted to share them anyways!

Here is an arctic fox...



This is one of my favorite animals ever....the Polar bear....




we got hit with a down pour and while it was raining we went to Stingray bay at the zoo and the boys got to touch the stingrays and even feed them....they were so happy!





the white rhino....so huge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Here are some posed photos.....the statue the boys are sitting on here is dedicated to an ape that died because someone fed him human food....


it was so hot before the rain.....the boys were really hot so I took them over to one of the water fountains and covered them in water to cool them down.


I love this photo of Jon & the boys





Here is one of the giraffe...


Apparently some of the animals thought it was a good time for a nap...lol....


I wonder what she was thinking....

I think Hippos are so cool....

it almost looks like she is posing lol!!!

elephants are so amazing!


The next day we went to Canada's Wonderland but as I have already showed 30 photos I will try for tomorrow lol!!!
