at the zoo
Just wanted to say that we went to a different zoo the other day, and this one was much better for Jo Jo, as she could actually see the animals. She pointed and “ooooh-ed” at the seals, elephants, hippo, and birds. She even imitated the bird calls in the aviary. At the zoo we went to for Easter, the animals have wonderful habitats with lots of space, but they are quite far away and the kids can’t see anything (better for the animals, though). This zoo was a little disappointing in the habitat department, but on the other hand had better ‘people’ facilities.
They had a great kids’ play area, with rock mountains and slides, a “wading” stream, a pretend beach, and an indoor (air-conditioned) play forest. This was separate from a large double playground, which was also good for small kids. My little girl went up the equipment and down the slide by herself! This big kid thing is happening way too quickly…
