Since our last attempt to visit the zoo didn’t work out, we used Noel’s last paternity leave day to go when the zoo was less busy. We went on a rainy weekday, so once the school groups ran for their buses we practically had the whole place to ourselves.
Ellen could have cared less about the zoo, but was plenty content in her fleece suit.
Cooper liked most of the animals (most of which were “dogs”),
but was terrified of the peacocks.
He was okay with the smaller birds though.
We’re all a little sad that Noel’s paternity leave is officially spent, but glad that we could use the very last of it for something fun.
