The Zoo....Again

Finally, a beautiful sunny day. Why not go to the zoo? Apparently, we weren't the only ones with this thought. There must have been 30 school buses in the parking lot. Because the zoo is only 15 minutes from our house, we often visit for an hour or in, see a few animals, then leave. Today, the boys wanted to "pet" the stingrays, so we thought we'd give it a try.
The stingray exhibit opened a few weeks ago and the boys loved it! Cate wasn't very interested, and I think Scott enjoyed it the most. Very cool. After the stingrays, we flew through the penguin house, snake house, waved to the giraffes, ate ice cream and were outta there. Home within 90 minutes...not too bad. Still plenty of time to cut grass and get ready for Ben's ballgame tonight..the only thing on our schedule..amazing.
