We're going to the zoo, zoo, about you, you, can come too, too, too....we're going to the zoo!

Do any of you know that song? It always sticks in my head when we talk about going to Como!!
And what a beautiful day we had....
yesterday we walked to Como Z00 from Randi and Nick's home!
The weather was perfect....warm with a breeze!
Como Park Z00 was started in the late 1800's and the first animals were 3 deer placed there in 1897! I've only been there a few times(my senior class went there for part of our senior class trip!) and we took the girls there a couple of times! Como is really a great family day trip! (They only ask for a free-will donation of $1-$2!) We plan to make many more trips to the park, we didn't even see half yesterday!
And Eli was such a trooper....he got to see 'Sparky' the seal preform!
He also saw the ape's (lower left in picture),

...the lions..
...the giraffe's.....
...and many other animals!

...and then after taking a nap on our walk back from Como he had a little lounging time in the back yard! What a great day!

On our way in and out of the park we checked out Como Town!!
Eli will be ready for a few rides next year.....good old fashioned fun!!!
Well, off to work......hope all of you have a great week!
