We went back to the zoo today with some friends. Did you guys know that when I was in high school, I joined the school paper when I was a junior? And my editor at the time, Nikki, now lives about 12 blocks away from me? (Also, randomly, when I was a senior I was a co-editor on the paper staff and my co-editor — the other half — just moved up to Minneapolis as well!).
So today Nikki and I took our boys to the zoo together. Her son, Henry, is 8 and he was brilliant and charmed Ezra to bits. He showed him all the tunnels and hidey holes that the zoo has to offer, and man did they have fun.
Of course, I brought my camera. But this time, we stayed indoors and visited the tropical area of the zoo (which is prime in the winter). Here are a few of my shots, including the poor monkeys who braved the outdoors as well!
