The weather was nice the day after Thanksgiving, so we headed out to the NC Zoo in Asheboro. It's always a longer drive than I think it is, but the girls did great watching Madeline on their DVD player, so I didn't have to worry about them getting antsy.
In the morning we almost had the zoo to ourselves. I had just gotten a new zoom lens for my camera and was having a blast trying to take pictures of all the animals. The animal favorites were the polar bear, the chimps, and the elephants. Madeleine liked the playground best of all though.
