So for one of our big “Spring Break” activities, we decided to take Megan to the Zoo in Des Moines. It’s not a huge zoo, meaning it doesn’t rival L.A. or San Diego, but it was a lot of fun. I think Megan mostly enjoyed being outdoors. Adam and I actually REALLY enjoyed the animals (the sea lions were Adam’s favorite, and I liked the tiger). We were able to get there right as the Zoo opened, so it wasn’t crowded AT ALL. We took A LOT of pictures, so I will post them on Picasa. But here are a few of my favorites from the day:
The first animal we saw was a Lynx. Megan called him a cat and said, “meow!”
There weren’t actually any elephants there, but this one was fascinating enough to Megan:
Megan look out! There’s hundreds of poisonous Jelly Fish behind you!
Adam’s favorite animal, the Sea Lion:

This face pretty much sums up Megan’s zoo experience!
Afterwards we went to an “all-you-can-eat” pizza and salad buffet.
We both All three of us thought it was super delicious, and Megan especially loved the cheesy garlic bread. I was in heaven with the apple strudel dessert. It was AMAZING! Seriously, I am going to have to try to “Google It” with all my heart because I don’t know how I have lived 24 years without it.
Finger lickin’ good:
All in all, it was a zooper fun day for us. We actually had never really done anything in Des Moines (except go to the airport) so it was interesting to see a little bit of Iowa’s capital.
