What a wonderful adventure at the Minnesota Zoo today. We (Grandma Betty, Anders, Kathryn, Osten, Ryan and myself) left the house at 7:45 and arrived at the Minnesota Zoo at approximately 9:45am. We met the Blomgren's and had a wonderful time touring the grounds.
Some of our favorites were dolphin training and shark tank at Discovery Bay, The Tropics Trail, Russia's Grizzly Coast--leopard, sea otters, brown bear, wild boar and the illusive tiger. Osten kept calling everything monkey and had a delightful time.
Kim packed a yummy lunch and shared with all. I had been planing on leaving earlier as I thought 3 hours at the zoo would be too much, but we wanted to stay for more and we still didn't see everything. Next time, we would like to hit the farm, spy a tiger, perhaps bring a swimsuit and enjoy the central plaza, watch the bird show and see the outlying exhibits. So much to see and do.
