Yesterday morning, I woke up determined to go to the zoo. So I did! I packed up the girls and we headed to the zoo. I was excited to see that it only took me 40 minutes to get there. I put Pear in the stroller, Jovie in the sling and grabbed a diaper bag full of goodies. We began our trek by going to the Northwest Aquarium where Pear got to pet the starfish and see other Native fish in the large tank. We then headed to see the monkeys and elephants which were both easily visible. Pear's favorite part though, was the walrus. "Mr. Walrus" would swim right up to the glass. He camped out right in front of Pear for a good 5 minutes just staring at her and the other kids.
We had a great time. I was a little leery to go to the zoo by myself with the girls but I can now say it was a success and we will definitely be going again as I bought a year pass. My pass is for myself and another adult. Children under 3 years old are free. Anyone want to join me next time?
