The first weekend in December is the Annual City of Surprise party. We saw the hot airballoon and tree lighting on Friday night. On Saturday Makenzie got to ride on an elephant, a camel, a pony and a train. She also got to pet lots of animals. It was overcast and really cold that day so we all had to bundle up on the jackets.
How many people can you fit on one elephant? . . . 6 . . . barely!
This turtle was just walking around in the grass so we deciede to get a picture with him.
Me: "Touch the snake Kenzie" Kenzie: . . . No comment . . .
She alomst touched it until it turned its head and started slithering toward her then she freaked out. I guess I don't blame her.
Kenzie and the huge turtle or tortoise don't know the difference.
Big colorful Birds
I just love this attempt at a smile
Look mom Birds!
Wooo Hooo Train Ride First big smile of the day!
Pony Ride great smile . . . don't look too happy
Last year they let us walk next to the kids as they were riding the ponies. This year they didn't but Kenzie didn't seem to mind.
There was a bubble machine that blew out thousonds of bubbles so the kids had fun chasing and popping bubbles.

She really was having fun on the camel ride . . . she just would NOT smile

I told her it was a baby snake so then she was fine holding it and it looked like a baby compared to the other snakes she saw.
