Day at the zoo

Last week we went to the zoo, and had a wonderful time. We saw meerkats, tigers, lions, bears, wolves, penguins, snakes, frogs, an armadillo, naked mole rats, and some that were not so naked, a polar bear, seals, giraffes, African wild dogs, dolphins, rhinos, and a condor. There was a graphic outside the condor cage to compare your size to the size of the bird. Here is P's comparison,


and here is C's. You can see the condor in the background. (C's arms are little compared to those wings!)


I have a picture of C sitting on this statue several years ago. I wish I could find it! How time flies!


It was a very breezy day, but not cold. There was an exhibit of animatronic dinosaurs but we got too tired to look at that, and we forgot to look at our membership tickets to see if we had tickets, so we saved that for the next time we go.


P enjoyed playing with all the percussion instruments in the gift shop. They had drums, maracas, rain sticks, a metal tambourine type of instrument (that he is holding) and several other things to check out. He is taking percussion in school, and you can tell he does like it.


The day started slowly, but was a definite success by the end of our time at the zoo. We signed up for a year's membership too, so we will be going back, and we saved plenty of things to look at.

My grandson takes that same picture with the wingspan every time we go to Brookfield Zoo!
