Zooper Fun!


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.
