Hi again, Sparky!

Alex and I headed to Como Zoo today to try and beat the 'School's Out' crowds..... FAIL! It was extremely crowded- tons of school groups on end of the year 'done teaching' trips and a huge amount of other people all crammed into a relatively smallish area. We did, however, have success meeting my friend (from all the way back to grade school) Sarah, who joined us on our outing. It was great to catch up with her, even though we were shuffling like zombies through the different animal houses.I suppose I should have anticipated the crowds, being that it was the first Monday that the new Polar Bear Odyssey was open-- too bad we didn't really even get to see any of it. We'll have to go back in a month or so when (hopefully) things have calmed down a bit. We did manage to see Sparky, though. We grabbed seats at 11am for an 11:30 show (and had to scramble to find three spaces in the lower deck), and Alex was quite the trooper waiting for Sparky to come out.
We braved the lines in the cafeteria and enjoyed a nice lunch before Sarah had to leave (and Alex had to go home and nap!)
