A Day at the Zoo!

I have been hoping to get to the zoo all summer!  The weather this weekend was looking to be great, so I thought it would be the perfect chance to do it before the snow flies!  We have a couple zoos in the Twin Cities.  The Minnesota Zoo is the larger one, with lots of great indoor and outdoor exhibits.  You really have to make a day of it because it isn't the cheapest place to visit.  The Como Zoo is smaller, but it is FREE (small donation requested.)  They have less animals on display, but it is still a fun place to visit.  They also have a conservatory with lots of foliage and flowers.

We opted for the Como Zoo today!  My mom (Nana) came along.  Jimmy was working so he had to miss out.  Parker is still a little young to get really interested in the animals.  He spent a lot of time looking at grass and flowers and trying to lick the concrete and glass.  I am really excited to go back next year to see how his attention span has changed.

  1. I commented that it "looked like Parker had fun watching the animals" because I looked through the pictures before reading what you wrote about how he was more into the flowers and the grass. Oops! :) Well, the pictures are adorable and he is so cute! Hope you had a nice time!

    1. I have done that same thing! I love to look at pictures first!
