During the month of October, there is a special promotion that allows kids to visit local museums and attractions for free. With that in mind, I decided to take my niece and nephews to the zoo over the weekend. We arrived early to avoid the crowds, and stayed until we were literally dragging. In between though, we saw lots of amazing animals... A couple of sleeping lions, an adorable panda, a jaguar whose best friend is a dog, too many venomous snakes to count (yikes!), a variety of bears, some playful bonobos, and so much more!
