A Field Trip to the Zoo

Last week I volunteered to chaperon Girlie Girl’s class field trip to the Honolulu Zoo. The kids were divided into groups and assigned to a different parent. One of the kids in my group didn’t come to school so I only had two kids, one being Girlie Girl. I really lucked out! I saw one mom with 5 boys! They definitely kept her on her toes! LOL!

    cute pictures. I need to take a trip to the zoo, all those things look new. I don’t think they were there when I was there last. Glad it worked out well

    Looks like a great trip…I am really looking forward to taking A to the zoo when the weather warms up a bit!

    sounds like a great trip! Nice that you only had two kiddos to look after. I would go crazy with 5 boys.

    You have to explain the picture of GG in the tube in the middle of the water!!! What aquatic critter is that for viewing?

    I Love that giraffe! How fun was that for the kids to play on. And girly girl is adorable. Yeah for only having two kids! Made it so much more fun for you & the two I’m sure.

    Looks like a lot of fun, and gorgeous.

    We love the zoo. Can you believe you’re already chaperoning and she’s already so big? Where does the time go???


  12. Jennifer says:

    That looks like a awesome field trip!!

    One thing I don’t miss about having my kids in school (I homeschool)is the chaperoning of field trips ;0) Never failed I would’ve been that mom with 5 boys! LOL!!

    We’re (hubby & I) are heading to Hawaii hopefully fall of 2010, that is what we’re planning now. Trying to decide Oahu or Maui, I think we’re leaning towards Maui. I can’t wait I’ve dreamed of seeing Hawaii for a LONG time!

    Looks like she had a ton of fun! I love zoos and I know my kids would love them, but the closest one is about 6 hours away…ugg!

  14. Baba says:

    Looks like it was enjoyable by you and the girls!

    What beautiful pictures. I love giraffes and have been lucky enough to get reasonably close to them. But I had no idea they were so tame. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Ann says:

    Fun photos…. going to the zoo can be so educational and fun.

  17. Katie says:

    What a fun looking zoo!!

    That last pic reminds me of when we took DS1 to the zoo last year…DH took him in to see the goats. He bent down to get to DS1’s level, and I guess one of the goats thought he was a big rock or something because it jumped on him!!! It was hilarious. I wish I had a pic, but I took it too late.

    Looks like it was a lot of fun!

  19. Rosie Scribble says:

    What fabulous photographs!

  20. Amy says:

    Hmmm, I wonder what’s my favorite, even if it’s not real? LOL

    Glad you had a nice time!

  21. Angie (Losing It and Loving It) says:

    I love going to the zoo.

    You really lucked out with the kids! Looks like you all had a nice time.

  22. Muthering Heights says:

    What a lovely zoo…it looks like a fun place for a field trip!

  23. VeRonda says:

    I am such a knucklehead… I was totally like “wow” when I first opened to your page thinking “I can’t believe the giraffe let them sit on him like that”. Oh well, it’s almost Friday. LOL! Great pics!!

  24. Sarah Bean says:

    Awesome photos! I miss the zoo!! I would say my favorite zoo animal would have to be the monkeys. They’re always doing something different when I visit – being lazy, goofing off, dancing around – fun!!

  25. Amy says:

    I love giraffes!!!!

  26. Desert Songbird says:

    I miss the days when I could chaperon field trips. Nowadays it’s nearly physically impossible. Of course, with district cutbacks, no one is taking field trips anyway!

  27. Mighty M says:

    Looks fun! I am SO excited for our upcoming Hawaii trip!!

  28. jennifer says:

    I love field trips. What fun! And the flamingos are beautiful….

  29. Kristi says:

    Sitting on the giraffe is amazing. What an exciting experience.

  30. Karen L says:

    Those are awesome photos! At first glance, I thought that giraffe was real! Your story reminded me of all those field trips that I helped out on. I had a son so was always stuck with a car full of boys. Ever spent an your with some kid kicking the back of your seat??!!

  31. Karen L says:

    whoops…just noticed my typo. I meant, “ever spent an hour with a kid kicking the back of your seat?” I would always have to pull over and sit there until the culprit started to behave. Needless to say, we were the last ones to arrive every time!

  32. matt says:

    Zoos are always fun!

  33. Grace @ Sandier Pastures says:

    Great trip but wait…that’s not a real giraffe, right?

  34. Eryn says:

    I can’t wait for this summer, when the weather is suitable for zoo hopping again.

    As it is now, we would be bundled up so tight we would be waddling like the penguins! lol

    Your daughter is growing up so fast, she’s so beautiful.
