We’ve been trying to get to the zoo since Cassie and Callie’s birthday. So today everything lined up and we met Nana and Papa at the MN Zoo. It was a beautiful day and it wasn’t too crowded. There were a few school groups but not too bad. The girls really liked the monkeys, the fish and the dolphin show. We even got front row seats (we got there right before it started and the front row is where you “might get wet”). It was really cool to see the dolphins up so close and the dolphins had mercy on us and did not splash us! On the outside trail they have an area where you can play in a big sand pit and dig up dinosaur bones OR climb to the top of the exhibit and scare your mom half-to death. The girls were so enthusiastic about everything! It was so fun to watch them run to each new exhibit. We saw one of the monkey exhibits that had a baby monkey that was born on Cassie and Callie’s birthday! It was nice to spend some time with my parents without competing with the whole gang. These are the good days!!
