We went to the Zoo yesterday. I LOVE going to the zoo on days that it looks like it might rain because everyone else stays away! And the animals are often close to the glass, staying sheltered from the pending rain. The ground was wet, but it didn't rain while we were there, it was perfect. We had an awesome time looking at the animals and stopping to read about the, more so than we have done in the past. Madison asked tons of questions about what they eat, where they live, etc. When we got home I asked them each to pick three animals that they wasn't to learn about further. I was hoping to learn about elephants, cheetahs, bears, you know, your normal zoo animals. Nope, they picked Meerkats, Tarantulas, and Lizards. Weirdos!
