Trip to the Zoo

Yesterday we went to the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium We'd bought some yearly passes last July so we thought it would be a good time to go again. This time they had the polar bears, but they are not finished with the whole exhibit. They're still working on the part where you walk through while the bears swim over you. I kept trying to get a pix of the girls in front of the bears but they weren't cooperating. So I give you a pix of the girls crawling out of the stingray tunnel. We're planning on going again next month when they do have the polar bear exhibit finished. I love the aquarium part of the zoo, esp the sea horses. The girls love the part where you pet the stingrays. I tried it too and it's really GROSS! Seeing the sharks (smaller ones) were what my DH really enjoyed. Of course the bears, lions, tigers, and all the other animals were really fun to see also. They have this part where you can walk through this part with deer to pet.. a neat idea if you like that sort of thing. The bub wanted to pet one but I got grossed out when the girl in front of us was licked by the deer. Luckily the deer wouldn't come near us which is good b/c it was so disgusting! And of course all the purell distributors were dry...luckily I carry some in my purse. The girls had saved some money from their grandparents and were able to purchase some stuffed animals, and also ride the merry-go-round. There were tons of people there I guess everyone was waiting for beautiful weather to go to the zoo. I decided that we should come in the winter and have the girls bundled up in their snow suits tromping through the snow to see the animals. I'm cracking up just thinking about that.

Sounds like you guys had a great time. We love going to the zoo too and we also have passes. They really save you money if you go a few times throughout the year. The polar bear exibit sounds really cool! You'll have to post all about it when you go back.
