Going to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo

Over the long weekend we decided to head to the zoo. It was a grey day with "chance of showers". We thought it would be a bit of gamble. On his many trips to Riverdale Farm, the wee man has shown only fleeting interesting the various beasts. As he's gotten older though, his interest has seemed to grow. If his vocab is any judge, all he knows are animals.

He liked the zoo in Edmonton, but would he be down with its bigger cousin in the Tdot?

We needn't have worried. The first enclosure we discovered was the Sumantran tiger. He thought these were some cool cats. Then when we rounded the corner there was the elephants. "Wow!" Then in pretty short order "ellafulalunt". Now he was hooked. No riding in the stroller, forget sitting still atop daddy's shoulders. This kid was off to the races to see what animal was lurking behind the next bush, tree or bend in the path. Good thing there was a fence between us and the lions.

We rounded out the day with a stop by the rescued Polar Bears. These were the best animals yet.

We will be returning.

Glad the animals were out and visible! When we went earlier in the summer, it was so hot outside that most of the animals were hiding out to keep cool.

Looks like the wee man digs the big animals. :)
