On Christmas Eve, we were all done with shopping and we knew the deep cold was coming soon. We wanted to get Ezra outside to burn some energy while we could (once it gets to zero degrees, we try to stay inside as much as possible). So we opted to take the kid to the zoo. We figured it wouldn’t be crowded (good guess!) and it was warm enough (20 degrees — it’s amazing how living in Minnesota changes your view on what is actually “cold”) to walk around a bit.
Ezra’s favorite part was the penguins, while I loved seeing the reindeer.
We are heading back to the zoo tomorrow — which is the warmest day of the week (a high of 11), but this time we’ll stay inside in the tropical areas. Sorry reindeer, I might not see you again for quite some time.
No internet shares today. The internet is super quiet, as it should be this week. I hope you all are taking time to enjoy your families! We are cooking new recipes and making art projects, playing games (we introduced Ezra to Twister!), so there are a few suggestions there! Go forth and relax to your fullest!
