Originally I had planned on a trip to the community pool yesterday. However, by noon, it still had not broken into the 80 degree range... a bit cool for a day at the swimming pool. We decided to go to the zoo instead.
I haven't been to the Toledo Zoo for six years. It felt good to go back. They had a baby polar bear and a baby giraffe. Some stuff had definitely changed. And we didn't stay long enough to see everything (because, believe it or not, by 2:30, it was closer to the high 80's and we were all hot and sweating!).
So here is the baby polar bear. Not such a tiny baby anymore. He (she?) was born in December 2009, so I guess he's had plenty of time for growing up.
My little bears....
After the polar bears, we headed to the land of Africa. There was a cool look-out area where you could see all of the animals walking around. The kids spent quite a bit of time trying to find all the animals that were out there.
We decided to take a ride on the safari train to take a closer look.
The hippos were very active... I've never seen them actually get up and move around the way they did. It was pretty cool to watch actually.
