Saturday we braved the cold weather to visit the zoo. It was a little too cold for me, but the kids didn't seem to mind, and it was Rachel's first interactive visit. She was enamored with the penguins! We also got to hear Sarah call each of the animals by their first name according to Barbie as the Island Princess. The zoo has a red panda, and since there aren't any leaves on its tree yet we had a great view of the little guy, and Sarah kept yelling "HI SAGI!" to it. It was enough of a distraction that the panda kept looking up at her and she was thrilled. She also told us that the peacock's name was Azul, and I'm pretty sure that all of the elephants are named Tika in her mind. I don't know what she will do when the baby elephant is born.
We also enjoyed seeing 3 day old twin tamarins. They were tiny! All you could see were their little arms and legs clinging to their mommy's back. This picture is of an older baby, but it gives a good idea of what we saw.
All in all I am glad we braved the weather--especially since our annual zoo pass expires today!
