We’re going to the zoo tomorrow,

Zoo tomorrow,

Zoo tomorrow,

We’re going to the zoo tomorrow, 

and we’re going to stay all day!

A family could certainly spend a whole day at the Minnesota Zoo with the many different exhibits, areas, restaurants, and splash pad. In fact, it would probably take more than a day to take in what the zoo has to offer. We started at the Tropics Trail as Miss Owl has family in Reunion Island and wanted to see the jungle.

The displays were interesting and informative. The pictures of animals and the maps helped to identify different continents represented. Miss Owl pointed to the Red Panda as she remembered it from one of our blogging kids’ sessions. Of course, you have been amazed by what children remember, too. After the tropics, the Minnesota Trail was explored. Being dark, photos were difficult to take. Then it was the Discovery Bay. Miss Owl was worried the Monk Seal from Hawaii was lonely as he was all alone in a huge tank. There were things to touch, fish to pet, and the seahorses had dozens of tiny babies! It all seemed magical.

Miss Owl posed with a photo of a sign showing where her origins are. Of course, those also include France and she has visited a few times already. 

Rocks make the best souvenirs. Most kid-friendly attraction shops have rocks and children can easily add to their collections. They can be arranged and sorted over and over.  She has grown so much since our last trip which was mostly to the farm area. This time we rode on their new in-park transportation, which is golf carts. Our driver told us each zoo with an animal carousel (naturally) has one unique animal. The Minnesota Zoo conservation carousel has one special such animal. Do you know what it is?
