Thanks for checking out my blog! This month, I spent the day with my 3 year old son, Jonah. My daughter, Sarah, went on an overnight trip with my husband and I got to spend a day 1:1 with my son. My husband and I like to do that from time to time to give the kids individual attention.
Jonah has been really wanting to go to the zoo. He has been talking about the penguins and the lions and of course the carousel! It was a beautiful sunny day, so I decided to take him to the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, WI. We still have a free zoo in Madison and its fantastic! We love that its free so we feel like we can visit it as often as we want to, sometimes just to see a couple animals. Since we go so often, both Jonah and I know our way around the zoo. We started off with the primates.
We then made our way to look for the penguins.
But unfortunately, they weren’t swimming. We did see them at the top.
Next we headed back over to the Rhinos. My daughter Sarah has a stuffed rhino which she affectionately calls “Scuffy” so Jonah was excited to see the “Scuffys.”
We carried on and saw the giraffes which unfortunately were inside, and the flamingos, which were inside too. And then he spotted the otters. The otter was adorable as he was doing backflips off the rocks. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a shot of that as it drew quite a crowd. We did go to the other side of the tank and here Jonah is hoping the otter will swim to this side where he can see it better.
After that, we went into the reptile house. Jonah saw frogs, snakes and a bee exhibit. He was enamored with how the bees moved through the hive.
On the way back to the entrance, we watched the seals for a bit.
