ABQ Zoo and the Botanical Gardens

This past weekend we went to Albuquerque to visit the Zoo and their Gardens along with Old Town. We needed a weekend of fun. Mike didn't get to go with us to Ft. Worth for Spring Break; so we decided to go and see the sights of ABQ.
We left right after picking Wendy up from school on Friday and arrived around 6:00 pm. We dropped the doggies off at our motel and then off to the Noodle Bar we found last summer. All I can say is YUM!
The next morning we woke up grabbed some breakfast and then asked "Lola", our GPS, the way to the Zoo. Off we went and stayed out all day having fun. It was suppose to rain that day so we had an alternate plan for an indoor museum if it did. Luckily we had a beautiful day to go after all.
There are some first on this trip... Evan got to swim in the pool for the first time and he loved it, but hung close. Sorry no photos of this, and his first cotton candy! Those are the first two photos. Evan had never fed Lorikeet's either and neither had any of the rest of us....I'm sure you can tell by all of the photos. lol His first time to see a Polar Bear and his first time to Sea Lions. Again where was the camera for that? Gee whiz! I will tell you he had the time of his life that day. We all had a wonderful time!!!
