we have the most fabulous local zoo just down the road. and get this...it is free. yes, free. nothing is ever free anymore, right?
so on sunny days quinn and i go there and walk and visit with the animals. when he is older, i plan to get books about each animal and we can study and then visit them and watch as they grow and change. i am pretty excited to live so near to this great place. of course, i do feel badly that these animals are not roaming free in there natural habitat and i kinda hate zoos sometimes for cooping animals up inside all these cages and bars. but zoos are probably here to stay so i will embrace them for the learning experience they provide.
that being said, here are pics of our most recent trip:
