Last week we had a relatively cool morning- meaning by 9 AM it was only 80, not 90- so we took advantage and headed to the pool for a few hours. Since we have a year pass and only live 25 blocks from the zoo I don't mind just going for an hour or two, so we go fairly often.
This time we decided to hang out by the sea lions (or sea horses as Jasper calls them) and polar bears. We sat there and watched them swim back and forth while snacking. It was actually relaxing instead of trying to see as much as possible as we used to do when we lived 30 min away.
Then J had a blast playing in the little river play area they installed a few months ago.
