Today my friend and I took the kids to Akron Zoo.
The weather was nice, but still needed a light sweater.
The girls had lots of fun. They saw all sorts of animals, snacked, played in the small playground, and enjoyed some bubble fun!
The sun was out and the sky was clear. Just beautiful! We took BirBir’s bike instead of her stroller. It’s a lot easier to push around (and more fun for her) than the stroller on a trip like this.
We saw the zebra, the bear, the tiger, the elephant, the giraffe, and all the other wonderful animals. BirBir enjoys looking at the animals, but her main attraction and absolute favorite are BIRDS! (just like her dad!). She would point and scream and get all excited if she saw any bird, even if it’s a normal, flying bird not part of the zoo animals!
Yet, when she did see the “zoo animal” birds, mainly the flamingo, the ostrich, & the macaw, she reacted just the same way!
They were selling balloons near the gate, on the way out, so we got her a big, pink zebra balloon. The shirt she was wearing had a picture of a pink zebra, so the balloon matched the “theme”. 🙂
Over all, it was a great day and we all had a great time. BirBir took a good, long nap afterwards, which is a good sign that she exhausted herself by having fun!
