PA Day

On Lola's first PA Day from kindergarten we decided to head to the zoo and visit with the animals.  Previously we have only gone to the zoo in the summer with the hot sun beating down on us and the crowds of people everywhere.  This trip was a very different experience.  We went early so that we could see the animals getting their breakfast and there was almost no one there.  For the first hour we didn't see anyone that didn't work at the zoo.  The sun was shining and the temperature got up to 10 and the animals were so entertaining.  We had an amazing visit.

The best part was the gorillas.  They put on a show for us and came over to the window to check us out.  Charles was banging on his chest and the baby was just causing general mischief.  I have never seen anything quite like it.

We stopped and ate some snacks in the sunshine and made a promise to come back on the next PA day in December.

Jeremy and I used to take Joseph to the Zoo in the winter first thing in the morning. There was nobody there and the zoo keepers sometime brought out special animals or gave us behind the scene tours. I actually prefer winter visits.
