We went to the zoo today. I had a Groupon for it that wasdue to expire on Thursday so we had to use it. It ended up being a good day because it poured this morning and even though the sun came out midmorning, the zoo was pretty empty.
We agreed that our favorite part was the aviary where all the birds landed on you. No Alfred Hitchcock moments and no bird poop so bonus!
The close second was, of course, the gorillas. I’m sad it was too dark to really make out the picture of my 3 smiling kids with the pissed off gorilla in the background. My eyes met with that gorilla at one point and I knew we had a connection.
Only ripple was pointing out Little Joe, the gorilla with a history of two escape attempts many years past. Fairly certain Aidan will worry about escaping gorillas now for at least a week.
