Memorial Day- Zoo!

This Memorial Day we celebrated by taking Ben on his first zoo trip!  We went to the local free zoo.  It is small, but is super cute!  I didn’t know before we got there, but most of the animals there are rescues of some sort.  They are animals that had been injured and sadly couldn’t survive in the wild any more.  They focus on local wildlife, so we saw a lot of birds.  The also had a couple of otters, some cougars, and some wolves!  The most surprising of all was in the reptile house- they  had alligators!  It was really cool to see them close up.

Overall Ben enjoyed the zoo.  He wasn’t too thrilled by the reptile house.  I think the alligators made him a bit nervous.  (Though he was wearing his alligator shirt, so they knew he was a fan.)  And the peacocks made too much noise for his taste.  (Side note- I did not know peacocks could be so loud!)  But he enjoyed seeing the wolves and the cougars.  In general he liked running around and having Meo and Omi there to play with.  It rained for a short time while we were there, but we made our own fun dancing under the stroller tent.  The rain kept a lot of people away however, so we had the whole place practically to ourselves!  We had a great time and will be going back again this summer.

It was a great way to spend Memorial Day morning.  We’re so thankful to have had the holiday to spend with family.  Thank you to all who have served and are currently serving in our armed forces for keeping this country safe.
