It was a big success. Pam, Kelly and the boys and I went to the Virginia Zoo shortly after 10:00 AM on Friday. Maybe Friday's are a big field trip day for the local schools because there were probably 10 groups of kids at the entrance. But that was no probably - its a good sized zoo and we got around without too much congestion.
It was impressive to see Kelly keep up with him and keep him hydrated and fed and entertained to stay ahead of the dreaded meltdown. He's an active and curious 2 year old.
An added bonus was meeting up with one of Brooks' buddies - Owen (a few months older that Brooks). He was there with his mom and grandmother. It was nice to see them again and spend some time together.
After the bears, we made it over to Africa exhibit and saw the giraffes and rhinoceros.
About lunch time, Brooks had seen enough and we headed out. It was a beautiful day and we all had a good time at the zoo!
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles!
