So the weather in our area has been beautiful. Low humidity, nice breeze, 70 degree weather so I decided to drive through the wonderful metro area traffic to get to the zoo. After some creative parking we enjoyed 3 hours of animal watching and park walking. The older and the younger kids enjoyed the day. It is such a pleasure for me to see the youngest see the animals in real life that he's only seen on TV and in books. His facial expression watching the lion roar was priceless.
