Baltimore Zoo

We had several days of sunny, dry weather that was so lovely. Today is Veteran's Day so a few days ago I asked Colleen if she wanted to go to the Baltimore Zoo with me. We agreed it would be fab-u-lous and were looking forward to it. Yesterday the forecast was for rain. I was talking to her and said what should we do. "Let's go" she quickly said, and I just as quickly agreed (this must be why we are friends, we are both nuts). This morning it was pouring, and cold. We bundled up and headed out.
The whole drive was miserable and I thought "oh no, what have I gotten us into" but when we arrived it was only drizzling and it turned out to be really great. There was one other family at the zoo that day, and a group of students:) We got front row views of everything; no crowds, no waiting. It was awesome!

This tundra mobile is in the polar bear area. So fun.
The children's zoo was really nice. They had caves to explore, a giant tree slide, animals to pet and lots of neat hands on things to do.
My favorite thing was the giraffe house, it was really neat and the giraffes were so cute peeking their heads over the walls to see us. The okapi was beautiful and the otters were fun. It was a little wet and a little cold but a lot of fun! Mike had the day off so he got to come with us, I wished that Beloved got to come, other than that it was perfect.

After we stopped at the conservatory to see the mums on display. The kids got to feed the fish and we enjoyed seeing the different flowers.

Sounds like a fun zoo. We usually go to the National Zoo. We will have to check out Baltimore one day.
