Day at the Zoo

Tuesday we had unusually warm weather in the high 50s. We took advantage of the springlike weather and to the zoo. It was great not have to bundle the girls in their jackets, hats, mittens, scarves, and boots. Grace ran and jumped almost the entire day.

Grace likes to see everything. I am looking forward to many more spring and summer days at the zoo!

Lydia wasn't going to sleep through the outing. She skipped her morning nap and didn't fall asleep in the stroller until almost 2 pm. She loved the fresh air, animals and watching all the other kids run around.

The lion was close to the glass and Grace liked watching him laze around.

We ended the day with a ride on the carousel. Grace hated the carousel last summer when we went to Bay Beach. I thought it would be better this year. It wasn't. She was okay sitting on the horse until the carousel started moving. Next time I think we will sit on one of the animals that don't go up and down. Although, as soon as we got off, she wanted to get back on.
