Grace experienced the zoo for the first time last week. What a day! It was pretty nice out, so we didn't have to deal with the rain, but I almost would have taken that over all the people! We went on a Thursday, and for some reason, it was completely packed. It took us about 20 minutes just to find a parking space, and I'm not exaggerating. Then once we got in, we had to pay $9.75 per person to get in. PER PERSON!! My sister said the Washington DC zoo is free. I'm sure it's a million times better than the Oregon zoo, too. Anyhoo, after we got over the sticker shock (which, I'll admit isn't horrible for an entire day of entertainment), we headed in to see the animals, right? What animals? I think all of the big animals were on hibernation. Although, I must say that Grace LOVED watching the fish and playing in the water. I think the zoo is more of a 3-5 year old thing. Once the kids actually know that they are looking for animals, it's probably much more entertaining for them.
She did love to ride the train, though. She was getting a little fussy at this point, but she liked to watch the trees go by.
Even one year olds can get bored at the zoo.
