Zoo Day

The forecast was for another warm sunny day so we (Carol, Darryl, Ed and I) decided to take Sarah to the Caldwell Zoo in Tyler. This is a wonderful zoo for kids as there are lots of colourful birds, fish and animals that remain active even in the heat. Of course there are the standard assortment of sleeping and hiding animals (lions, tigers, etc..), but they don’t get an almost 3 year old’s attention, while the parrot that chatters away to you does. A first for me was cattle in a zoo — they had a new exhibit of 2 young longhorn cattle. Sarah had a blast — she loved the colourful birds, the river otter, the exotic fish, the penguins and especially the goats in the petting zoo.
