Thursday Andrew and I braved the 50 degree weather and made our first visit to the Pittsburgh Zoo. I have to admit I wasn't looking forward to the experience. In the past visits to the zoo have involved sweating, tired legs, not seeing any animals, and more sweat. This visit was a whole different experience. We saw every animal, we weren't tired from too much walking, and because of the cold weather we didn't sweat at all. I am now convinced that the Pittsburgh Zoo, although small, is my favorite zoo. Andrew and I had a blast seeing all the animals up close. The design of each enclosure is done in such a way that one can see that animals. Yet another winning experience here in Pittsburgh.
We actually got to hear the lion roar! It was amazing. Andrew said it sounded like he was burping.
When we entered the penguin enclosure Andrew said, "Mom, I think the penguins are sad." Why, I asked. "Because they can't dance in there." We definitely have watched too much Happy Feet in this house.
