A Day at the Minnesota Zoo – 2013

Sometime last year I had mentioned to a friend of mine that I really wanted to go out to Mount Rushmore. She and her system hatched a scheme that would take us out over Memorial Day weekend. This plan was ultimately pushed back a couple of months and we decided on Labor Day weekend.

Once every so often I like to head out to the zoo to see the animals. I have this love/hate relationship with zoos. Part of me loves them because it allows me to see animals I would not normally see. The other part of me hates them because these animals are away from their natural habitats, often times in rather small enclosures, with people staring at them... and then there are the stupid people who have no idea what they're looking, regardless of the signs that are posted. "oh mommy, look at the monkey." Here are a few from my trip to the zoo this past Sunday.
