one of our christmas gifts from grandma elaine and grandpa john was a year family pass to the zoo, so yesterday afternoon when mike got home early from work (and sam was all napped and perky) i thought it would be fun to head over there for an hour or so. afterall, beyond the gas it takes to get there, it was free entertainment. so off we went.
sam was quick to locate his favorite animal—the north american cherry-picker. i was glad it was caged, because i'm almost certain sam would have tried to pet it.
after that, we hopped onto the tram and rode up to the fish/primate/cat building, where sam was most excited to see all the fish.
then we had a little fishy-snack (goldfish crackers) while we rode back down.
it was a short visit, but it was a good outing for an afternoon, and we're certainly hoping to go back again soon.
