To the delight of the Kid and his adults, we were able to see most of the critters. The polar bears are the zoo's current stars, but--even with a nice overcast day--they were a little warm to be doing much. The Kid loved Leia the elephant, though, as well as the silly penguins.
And then there were the rides--trains, trams, sky cars, you name it. And the fact that he got to legitimately shout the word "poop" in public when a zookeeper showed him some elephant....well, poop.
While I'm not normally a big fan of zoos, seeing the animals through my little monkey's eyes was darned good fun. And the real apes were cute, too. ;)
