I have been driving Jacob crazy about going to the zoo for the past several months...Finally the day came!! We planned leaving from the house around nap time hoping the babies would sleep in the car---nope---not a single one slept! haha....despite not having a nap and a later lunch time they all did great! We thought for sure their favorite animal would be the monkey but surprisingly they liked the kangaroos (hop-hops in their words) best. I think dad was disappointed the most in their lack of interest in the monkeys-after he pushed that stroller up that big hill to the primate house it would have been nice to see more reaction from them-hahahaha...
We had quite a few hands on board to help us; Lexi brought her friend Emma, Amy of course, and our friend Buddy with his two daughters all joined us. I wish I had pictures of Buddy with his two daughters and their doll strollers-it was priceless and quite entertaining!
I think we will try the Akron Zoo next because even though they don't have quite the exciting choice of animals to see its much more condense and might appeal more to them at this younger age.
