Lions, Tigers, Bears, Oh My!

One leg, many feathers
Over the weekend I did lots of cleanin' and such. But before that, I also squeezed in plenty of fun, like a spontaneous trip to the Twin Cities for a day at the zoo! Nick had an appointment in St. Paul, so we made a day of it, stopped by Grandpa Ed's and took the boys (Luke and Owen) to Como Park Zoo. For the first time in my life, I drove through the cities! I was terrified (spaghetti junction-yikes!) and couldn't even talk, except for the nervous mutterings periodically. It was dry heat, so we could enjoy aimless wandering and frozen treats. The boys loved Como Town for the water balloon fights and the scrambler, while Nick and I gushed about the baby and mama Orangutans cuddling and kissing. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the zoo! I always thought I would outgrow it. I loved it as a child, and going back brought so many memories to the front of my mind; meanwhile, I also got to create new, wonderful memories. 

Did you go to the zoo when you were a kid? Do you go now? What animals do you have at the zoo? We have an arboretum filled with exotic plants, do you have one? I'd love to know some other great zoos and botanical gardens for the future! Any suggestions would be great!
That's right.
