We took the kids to the zoo last weekend. I get a season pass every year from work. We use it enough that it definately pays for itself throughout the year. We had a great time! They have a Budgie exhibit, where you can buy a popcicle stick with birdseed glued on it and feed the birds. It was Colby's first time in the exhibit and he was fascinated with all the brightly colored birds. The kids also wanted to ride the Carousel, again Colby's first time. He wasn't really impressed with the Rhino at first. Then once the ride started and he realized that it moved, he was excited. He didn't want to get off when the ride stopped. It was such a warm day that when the kids started splashing in the water feature, we figured oh well, they'll dry. We managed to get them to pose on the gorilla statue for a picture too! All in all, a wonderful day! Love it when we can do things as a family.
