We’d been talking about going to the zoo all week but were a bit concerned that it might rain today. So when we got up this morning and saw that there was indeed heavy, falling moisture in the air, we were a little bummed. However, my oldest son mentioned that friends at his school told him that rainy days were the best days to go to the zoo. So of course, I looked it up. And wouldn’t you know it… rainy days ARE considered the best days to go to the zoo. This is for several reasons:
- The zoo won’t be as crowded since people don’t want to come out in the rain.
- According to one of the workers at the zoo, the animals are actually more active on rainy days.
- Puddle splashing and twirling umbrellas only add to the adventure of the day.
Needless to say, we packed up the family and headed out.
I apologize for the fact that there are only 4 pictures. I’m usually the photographer in our family, but I passed off the camera to one of my sons who thought that when I said, “Take pictures” I meant, “Only take pictures of the animals and none of the family actually enjoying our visit.” lol So, here are a few with people in it… and one with a goat.
My gorgeously pregnant wife and Aaron.
