Yesterday N and I packed up the girls and went to the zoo! The day was muggy and hot but also sunny and very beautiful. It took us a long time to walk around due to all the heat and humidity. This is one of the few times that we decided not to trek up the big hill. Consequently, we missed out on seeing the reptiles, the monkeys, the cats and the fish. The seals weren't out either (a HUGE bummer for me since they are my absolute favorite). We concluded that we need to visit again when it's not so hot outside.
Despite the weather we had a nice visit. Little P enjoyed all the animals but spent most of her time chasing sparrows, like the ones we see right outside (go figure, lol). She also really liked the wolf statue and was disappointed she didn't get to see the real thing. Hopefully next time we can. I just hope she won't want to give the real thing a hug! C was excited to be out and about and was smiling and laughing most of the time. She was a real trooper in all of that heat.
N was excited to see the camels and I spent most of the time admiring the flowers. But mostly we were excited to watch the girls and see their reactions to things. It was great spending time together at the zoo. I can't wait to do it again soon :)
