I've been taking the kids to this zoo since they were born. In fact, I remember taking the day off work, to take my son there for his first birthday. Oh my gosh, that was 23 years ago. Sigh....
The zoo removed the small rain forest they had, and put in ceiling to floor fish tanks. Some can be viewed from both sides.
This Mom had a new baby, but photos were hard to get.
You can't see them very well, but these are wolves. There were dingos in another caged area as well.
They even have goats at this zoo. We did not see all of it when we left. I had logged 8,402 steps on my fitbit, and my tooties were killing me. The kids however, could have walked more, but chose to save the rest of the zoo for another day. You really could spend a weekend here.
The funniest part of this day trip, was the kids. Every photo I attempted to take, those two were taking "selfies" and at one point I tried to photo bomb them. They were so excited. The kids haven't been on any day trips for a few years I think, so they were fired up with energy. We've gone camping nearby, but nothing like this.
I'm glad we took them. Now that we all had a fun, relaxing day, it's back to reality.
Garden prep is still put off, as we expect a boat load of rain this week. I checked on my garlic, and saw all of the 100 are up, but maybe three or four. I pulled some tall dead flowers that were covering one small flower bed. I saw that the tulips were up higher than the hyacinths or daffodils.
Two of us woke up sick the day after this one-day adventure. Mainly a sore throat, and laryngitis. One is me. I have been able to avoid sickness for the longest this winter, and now this. Hmpf. I woke up to thunder and more rain, so it's a day with hot tea, gargles, and elixir for me. It could be spring allergies too.
Thanks for reading through this rather long post today.
