The kids and I went to the zoo yesterday-- finally! I've been meaning to take them for weeks, but we hadn't had an open day, until yesterday. It was quite chilly, but it was well worth any discomfort because the zoo was deserted. We had the place to ourselves!
One of the stressful things about taking my zoo to the zoo (or any place else) is that it can be very challenging to keep track of everyone. It was a lot simpler when there weren't any other people around.
We loved, loved, loved the new Rocky Shores exhibits with the sea lions and leopard seals. We got to watch the trainers working with them and teaching them tricks and feeding them fish.
Everyone's absolute favorite thing was the polar bear who keep swimming right up to the glass, pushing off it and swimming back over and over again. You can't see Faith's whole face in this picture but it was sheer wonder and delight.
The zoo was definitely a better outing for a two year-old than Walmart.
