We decided to get up early and out of the house this morning. There were a lot of exhibits we missed a few weeks ago, so we decided to hit the zoo again. It was rainy this morning, but forcasters said it would clear, and it did!! It was such a fun morning. Unfortunately I decided not to take my camera. "Really, how many more zoo pictures do we need this year?" OF COURSE, all the exhibits were super-cool this time. We decided to go to Amphibiville where there was a sloth hanging on a branch, just about 2 feet above my head. Even the zoo keeper said that he really NEVER does that. WAY COOL! There was actually no line for the Australian Outback exhibit, but the kangaroos were all sleeping. We decided to do the polar bear "Arctic Ring of Life" again. Last time we were there we only saw the seals. This time there were two polar bears swimming all over and around the viewing tunnel. One even sat right up on top of the tunnel for like 10 minutes. WHY DIDN'T I TAKE THE STUPID CAMERA?! The kids didn't want to leave at all. Finally, it was time to go and I sort of dreaded the train ride since it was a bit of a disaster last time. But we got right up to the platform, bought our tickets and only waited about 3 minutes for the train to come. There was no crowd at all. We got right on! I think I realized that last time there was only one train running. Today there were two. All in all, a fun day. Now 2 of 3 kids are napping! yay!

We were going to go to the zoo today but the rain scared us away. It sounds like we missed out on the perfect zoo day :(

I miss the zoo there. It is a GREAT zoo! Give the polar bears and sloths a long-distance high five from the Mayes fam next time!

Ahh -- total mom RnR after a glorious zoo day. Total bummer about not having a camera -- you could have got the best shots.
