1st Zoo Visit

Okay, I know it's February, but we literally haven't seen the sun or the grass in 2 months, so when the weather was in the high 50's for 2 consecutive days we jumped at the invitation to go to the Akron Zoo. It also happened to be Sawyer's 1st zoo visit. I think the sunshine did us all well.
Both S and G enjoyed running around outside, climbing rocks, watching the penguins up close, pointing out all the animals, and licking the exhibit's glass enclosures (okay maybe that last thing was only Sawyer). We went with some church friends so there were 5 adults and 6 children ranging from 4 years old to 3 weeks. Let's just say we had quite a wild adventure at the zoo. Not really sure why we brought the strollers :)

We were there for 3 hours and the kids did great. They were so entertained by the animals and the people watching.

Sawyer wanting to go on the rope bridge, but I'm pretty sure he's legs would have fallen right through.

And a tip for those who may be visiting the Akron Zoo. If you show your Acme Fresh card at the ticket desk and buy 1 regular priced ticket you get the next ticket free (adult or child).
