Alex, Uncle Willy and I headed to the zoo this morning. Before we officially decided to go, Will and I were talking about the zoo in code (Z-O-O spelled out....). Apparently this code is no longer effective. We were disappointed to learn that the World of Birds show was canceled for the day, and Alex had her heart set on seeing both Coconut the Cockatoo and the Bald Eagle. We couldn't do much about the cockatoo, but we went straight to the Minnesota Trail to see an eagle. They have an activity for the kids to complete (stamping stations 'hidden' throughout the trail), and it was the first time that Alexandra wanted to do it. She was so excited to have Uncle Willy help her collect all 8 stamps!
