We had meant to take Greyson to the zoo, as soon as he started learning his animal sounds. We would plan a weekend, then something would come up, then we picked another date, and something else would come up…so he had plenty of time to practice.
We finally decided we would go on Superbowl Sunday, before the game. Part of our reasoning was that this was the next available weekend, and the other part is we figured it would be less crowded…and it was. We had almost the entire place to ourselves to watch the animals (and practice our animal sounds.)
The first animals we got to see were the flamingos…which were quite impressive.While we were in the bird exhibit, we had to see how we measured up. 😉We B-lined it to the giraffes because that was on our top “must see” animal list, Greyson was pretty excited about them.
We probably could have visited the animals in order according to where they were located on the map (to be more efficient at this zoo visiting business)…but we picked all the animals we wanted to see most then visited them in a zigzag-cross-hatch-where-are-these-people-going?-pattern. Next, we were on to the cats! Snow leopard was first…and kind of scary. Then we snuck up on a tiger during his/her little cat nap…
Then we saw the most perfect Lion King family. You can’t see her but mom’s laying on the rock behind Simba and Mufasa. 😉
