We're goin' to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo...

How about you, you, you? We LOVE the zoo. Capron park happens to be our favorite for a few reasons.

  • It's rather close, 40 minutes tops

  • It's small which means Ky can run around it twice and we don't have to bring the stroller or pack a lunch

  • There is a huge playground just outside the zoo doors for when the animal tour runs it's course, but the kiddo's aren't quite ready to call it a day

  • They have a sandbox pitstop before visiting the Lemour's (Zoboomafoo!)

  • Lions! Who doesn't love Lions! ?

  • And if there is enough time, money and energy, Chuck E. Cheese is a stones throw.

  • And we LOVE toooooey! It's a rare, random animal called a Bintuwong who we Donahue ladies (and kids) refer to as Tooooey!
Have I mentioned how much Ky loves animals of all kind. Of course, we figured there'd be a good chance seeing where we have 4 cats and a dog, Daddy's play's with animals for a living and for fun. But he really at the core love's animals. Despite having a nasty run-in with a cat who is not used to being pouced on by a toddler, he still loves them! I think it's great for him too. He learns to love, be gentle, have compasion and stand up for himself through our pets. He also yells at the dog "Goco, lay down!" Wonder where he hears that harsh tone? La la la......
