Up Close and Personal

We went to St. Paul this morning to visit Auntie Carrie (and get the cats back-- they'd been vacationing with her while we showed the house). It was pretty chilly out, but we braved the elements to go to Como Zoo.We had a great trip-- all of the animals were right up close. Alex got to meet a Sea Lion who kept shaking his head whenever she touched the glass.
She also got to say hello to an orangutan who looked a little sad and bored......I hope his day got better.The giraffes were in their indoor enclosure, since it was a bit chilly out, but Alex had a great time counting them (and their spots) right up close!

Como Zoo is so different from the MN Zoo-- we'll definitely have to head back here a bunch this summer!
