we spent most of the day yesterday at the bronx zoo with friends! i had never been before (!) and as a result, this was also the first time around for my littles. while the weather was as glorious as an autumn day can get and the zoo felt completely empty when it comes to people and crowds, there weren’t many animals out. (i guess most of those exhibits are only open on weekends after summer ends and the petting zoo is closed for renovations.) also, no camel rides yesterday. and let’s be honest here. i was *really* looking forward to that. but the kids still had a great time. and i had a great time, too. tends to be the case no matter what though when we’re outside in good weather and with great friends and company.
