The Zoo

One benefit to homeschooling is that you can do things when everyone else is in school.

Back in April, we tried to go to the Zoo, two weekends in a row. And had to leave both times because not only was there no place to park, but there were so many people walking from distant parking spots that there was no place to drive. All because we decided to go to the Zoo when everyone was on Spring Break.

Homeschooling doesn’t necessarily make you a better planner. πŸ™‚

Third time was a charm though.

These are just photos from my phone but I thought you might enjoy them.

Here we have the photo we take every time we go to this zoo.

As evidence, this was last year’s version:

We have an older version, but I couldn’t find it.

We went into the fish house and, I don’t want to scare you but…

the piranhas couldn’t take their eyes off of us.

The hippo was kind of cute, waiting patiently for his lunch.

Until he opened up his big mouth.

The other side of the glass is such a nice place to be.

And not just because it’s air-conditioned.

    My kids now want to go to your zoo. And mostly because of the fake komodo dragon. πŸ™‚

    Well, the real komodo dragon lives in the house right next to the fake one, so you should come down to see both. πŸ™‚

    I seem to remember a post about the weather that might make me think twice about coming for a visit. And maybe one about a scorpion… πŸ™‚ But it would be really fun! (If you weren’t about to have a baby)
