Saturday at the Zoo
To avoid the worst of the heat we were at the zoo when it opened at 10, ad got a front row parking spot. We saw flamingos nesting then walked through the reptile house where Allison got to touch a Mexican burrowing python. The big hit of the day wasn't the new baby elephant (although I really enjoyed that) but feeding the birds. For a dollar you can buy a Popsicle stick with birdseed and feed the cockatiels. Least time we did it was a trip later in the day ad the birds weren't hungry. This time we were one of the first people to go through and had 3 birds trying to eat at once.
