First Zoo Outing of 2013

As you know, we're big fans of the zoo. However, this year was a brutal winter - more snow than I am used to seeing (T Rex Dad would beg to differ). As my little guy T said yesterday, "Boy, I am glad it's warming up. I was so tired of wearing a coat everywhere for everything." Then Lil Sis piped in boisterously, "ME TOO!!!!" Amen to all of that.

This first zoo outing was from last week. It was a balmy 48 degrees. We went again yesterday and it was really nice at 68 degrees. We really did not need coats yesterday but we still did when these photos were taken.

On both trips to the zoo, we never made it through the whole zoo. The kids are getting more focused on certain things and I find we linger for longer periods of time. We used to do the entire zoo in about an hour. Now we make it through a third in an hour and a half. We still have not made it to feed the giraffes. I will post photos when we do. Until then, enjoy these. The last photo is of the kids seeing the red pandas. They are quite shy and nocturnal. We have actually never been there while they are out so it was quite a treat to see both of them roaming their encounter area.

Oh how wonderful! I'm dying for our weather to clear up. It's got to be the coldest day we've had all year today. Deaglan said something similar a few weeks ago about he wished we could wear just our shirts outside.

I have YET to take my daughter to the zoo; I want to do that this year, especially since I'll be turning 30 in January and it's on my bucket list of things to do before I'm 30.
