Yesterday we took a trip to the Cincinnati Zoo. My parents are in town and we wanted them to see it since it’s so much bigger than the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia. It was also Ava’s first trip to the zoo. She seemed to actually look at a few of the animals (when she wasn’t asleep in the carrier). I think she especially liked the Manatee Springs building, because the manatees and fish get pretty close to you.
I had forgotten how comfortable the zoo is, even on a 90º degree day; most of it is mercifully in the shade. And for a $7 day, there were far fewer people there than I had expected.
