During Kira’s visit this week, we made a little trip to our favorite haunt, the Minnesota Zoo. I have had a membership to this zoo ever since the kids were little (it really pays to have memberships to places when they are <18 years) and I now have a single +1 membership, so David and I can go whenever we want and when Kira’s around, she gets in free, or I can take a friend with me for free. Whenever we hear the pitter patter of little feet, we will get the Grandparents membership.
I can only go for a little more than two months without a zoo visit, and after that I get an almost overwhelming need to go. ( It’s really kind of strange, this need I get). I’ve recently been having that feeling about the History Museum, I guess I’ll have to back there soon.
I took quite a few pictures, a lot of them didn’t turn out very well, even with a camera that can ‘do it all’ by itself. I always have to putter around, I’m certain THAT has nothing to do with it, so it’s a good thing there are fix-it choices in the pic ture files.
We went through the butterfly exhibit and I got some good pictures of some butterflies I’ve never seen before.
