We Went to the Zoo

What a sweetheart!

Our picnic lunch



Today was a fine day to go to the zoo with my family. Heidi, Marshall and I joined Peder, Sarah, Aurelia and Felix and Steve at the Minnesota Zoo. It was really fun for me to see Marshall interact with Aurelia, and Felix was generous with his smiles. One part of the zoo that particularly fun was the area with water spouts. Aurelia has been out to this zoo many time, so she went right to the spouts and enjoyed getting "rained on." Marshall was a bit timid, but eventually he decided it was rather fun and didn't want to leave.

A few weeks ago a baby dolphin was born and we got to see her swimming next to her mother. In a few weeks the two will join the other dolphins and the public will have a closer view of the baby.
