A Trip to the Zoo
We went to the zoo with our friends and their 2 boys. Kurt and the boys had a ball chasing each other, running down the paths. We all had fun seeing the animals, the boys showed us their favorite animals and we showed them our favorites. None of us had the same favorites. The tigers were out and about where we could see them and one of them put on a good show for us playing with some kind of something he'd found in his area. We saw moose, caribou, meerkats, wolves, prairie dogs, bison, camels, sharks, fish, turtles, a bear, a dragon (komodo), a huge snake that was looking at us through the glass, otters, birds and lots of other things. We all really enjoyed watching the baby Macaques running and playing. They picked on the adults a lot and the adults were very indulgent. A favorite trail at the zoo "The Minnesota Trail" is closed for the year for renovations so we didn't get to see any of the animals there. But we did get to see a new exhibit being constructed, there is going to be a Russian animal exhibit next summer and we are excited to see it.
