We took a short 2 hour trip to the zoo this morning. It was a perfect day, sunny but not hot and not at all crowded. This was probably the slowest day I've ever seen at the zoo. We even saw some new things we have never seen before today including penguins and a spider house. Of course the most interesting things to the kids are the statues, non animals, playground and the mouse house. But I've been on this adventure many times now and have realized whatever is exciting for the kids is fine. They can enjoy it any way they want.
Callie has finally mastered the playground there and was all over it without any help, crossing bridges and climbing over nets. I guess she is trying to prove she really does want a playground for her birthday.
