In spite of my encouragement to sleep till at least 8, J woke up early as usual today. So I checked the weather and saw that it was supposed to be in the 70s till after noon. It was a bit cloudy outside so it seemed perfect for a zoo day.

When asked what animal she wanted to see first, she told each of us separately that she wanted to see the giraffes. We decided a train ride past them could be a great way to see them today. After that we went to the children’s zoo and enjoyed the splash areas. It was great!

We love that having a pass means we can go for just a few hours and do 2 things instead of feeling like we have to see everything in one trip.
