Finally! Yes after two failed attempts to visit the zoo, the third time was the charm! We found a very nice parking spot and ventured into the zoo on Thursday around 11am. This was Ace's first visit to the zoo and he did wonderfully considering he was getting over being sick. It was wonderful to have Grammie join us on this adventure!
Ace spent a good amount of time on his dad's shoulders taking in all of the sights. It was a feeding day at the zoo - as a special Fourth of July weekend attraction, so Ace and his dad were even interviewed on camera for a local segment, sadly they didn't make the cut - so Ace will have to have his television breakthrough at a later date.
It was a warmer day so sadly the animals were not as active as they might have been if it had been a standard northwest afternoon, but that's ok - it was decent weather to walk around in and we all appreciated that. Not sure that Ace had a favorite animal at the zoo - at least nothing that he squealed particularly louder at anyway. But he did certainly enjoy looking at all the furry things move around. The monkeys/gorillas were the most active so we spent the most time observing them. It was a delightful time.
