Let me tell you -- the zoo looks a whole lot different in the winter! For one thing -- not very many people are visiting. The zoo is now closed, but is having "winter weekends" and open each weekend in December. For some crazy reason, Maddy and I decided to visit on Sunday, when the high temp hit a balmy 20 degrees! Can you say BRRRRR!! It was so cold!!
Maddy visited the reindeer. They are preparing for an epic journey soon!
Pretended to be an Eagle!
Visited famous zoo landmark, Leo the Lion -- he eats trash -- really, he does!
Saw the new Penguin habitat.
Our new penguins are warm weather penguins and
were off in an indoor heated pool somewhere - aren't they smart!
And posed with our fave little bear wearing shades -- she said he was really cold!
And we ended our visit with someone very special in the Zoo boutique --
more about that later! :)
