Alan and I took the afternoon off and went to the zoo as a family. It was so much fun!
The zoo was quiet and nearly felt like a ghost town. Around 4:45 PM, we noticed there was absolutely no one in sight, not even workers. We were enjoying having the place to ourselves and were looking forward to at least another hour and a half looking at the underwater animals and playing at the playground.
Turns out, the zoo closed at 4 PM and we had no idea. We hardly found our way out of there because some of the doors were already locked. Maybe we should’ve spent the night–I wonder if anyone would have noticed?
Our favorite part of the zoo is the farm. As you can see in the slideshow below, Anna and Mia still love having their pictures taken in the chicken cutouts and watching the chickens hatch from eggs. My photos are pretty lame but I was trying to be present and not take too many pictures this time.
It was a beautiful, late summer day to be out adventuring as homeschoolers. So much fun and such a memorable day.
