Kate & Willie

My in-laws flew in this morning for a visit.  We headed to the zoo after we picked them up and got there a few minutes before it opened.  It was crazy busy since it is the last Friday of spring break but, we managed to have a good time!

We headed straight back to the African Safari area in hopes of beating the crowds and kids who where mesmerized by all of the animals in the front of the zoo.

Our plan worked!!  And Willie, the youngest chimp at the zoo, greeted us!

He was totally smitten with Kate and flashed her a big smile!


Then he tried to play with her and made some funny faces!


He flashed Kate another smile


And then something caught their attention


I think Willie & Kate are BFF.  It was too funny to watch them interact! 

We continued on to a few other exhibits.  Kate fed some giraffes.


Watched the rhinos with Bebe and Pawpaw



And of course looked cute while doing all of the above!


We had such a great time!! 

I wonder if Willie will remember Kate when we head back to the zoo Monday?!?!  Kate and Ella have a play date with the animals!  I am looking forward to it!

Soooo cute! I can't believe how social and funny those chimps are. They were pretty hilarious at our visit too, but not as much as they were with Kate. She must have that special charm :).

The pictures of Kate & Willie are SO cute! It looks like she has made a new pal! I wish our zoo was a bit closer, such a wonderful way to spend the day.
