A HOT Day at the Zoo!!!

Marion and I have been wanting to try out her new gold membership to the zoo card, that allows members to have free unlimited carousel, train, and tram rides. So, today, very spontaneously, became "the day". Whooo Boy, though, we did not realize or remember how HOT and HUMID it gets at the zoo in July in the afternoon!!!
We're off to a great start with a Carousel ride!
Upon walking by this beautifully landscaped area, we just had to stop and pose for some pictures...(By the way, Kayli found that hat in her toybox, all rolled up and stuffed under a bunch of dinosaurs. She pulled it out, shook it and "shaped it", and proclaimed it as "perfect" as she placed it on her head, as if THIS was the finishing touch, and headed for the car!)

We can't pass buy the Buddha without rubbing his tummy for luck!Oh, yeah, a nice relaxing ride on the tram with a TINY bit of breeze...
Kayli can't muster up a smile when she's thinking she might fall off this railing and get eaten by cougars...of course, there is so much distance here between us and the animals that I was using a 24X zoom for pictures!
Ahh, Aunt Marion will hold Kayli while I take pics...
Ohhh man, can you see how hot everyone is?

AHhhh, at least there's some shade in our wagon with the canopy...

Now this guy sure knows how to pose!

And, here's an equally pensive pose...

Back on the tram to our last stop, the sea lions...

The Sea Lion put on quite a show. Our timing was perfect, since we didn't even plan to be here at show time!
We stopped in the gift shop and bought a "small something" for everyone. Kayli chose a tiny soft, stuffed lion. Then, we took one last picture on this "quarter ride" and decided we were heading to M*c*Donalds for ice cream. We thought this would be the most delicious way to cool off from this very HOT outing!
(I took this picture straight into the sun, but had my forced flash on, and the picture turned out great!)
