The Zoo



For a long time, I have looked forward to seeing the boys' expressions when we introduce them to the zoo for the first time. We love to visit in the summer, but even in the winter, the tropical area is open and there are plenty of animals to observe. We spent a relaxing Sunday afternoon at the Minnesota Zoo and the boys just took it all in stride.

Jayden would quickly locate each animal and then want to run ahead to the next one. I kept slowing him down so we could all observe and comment on each one. Wesley was tentative and wary at first. I think he was worried the animals could somehow get to him. All of the kids seemed to enjoy the large aquariums the most. Jayden wondered about the fish getting water in their eyes. I'm sure he had never observed fish in this way before.
