Calgary Zoo

DSC_0212

This weekend I took my five youngest and headed to Calgary to visit my sister and her family.   We went to the zoo to see the new penguin exhibit and the baby tigers.   The tigers were hiding, but the penguins were awfully cute!

It was rather cold and drizzly and we moved through the zoo fairly quickly.   But the cousins always have a great time together, no matter how long it has been since they have seen each other.   They are the best of friends... and Silas fit right in!   There was no fear or anxiety at all with this trip.
