winter break: day 2
I can't remember the last time we've been to the zoo (I feel like I say that every time we visit). With the girls in school and so many fun no school day places to go we really don't get to the zoo that often anymore.
Before we moved to Minnesota the zoo had dolphins. After the dolphins left they got monk seals, which really don't do much and are pretty boring to watch. A month or two ago one of the zoos in Chicago needed a place to house their dolpins while they renovate their zoo, so the dolphins are at our zoo temporarily. The dolphins are so much cooler than the seals!
