Today, we went to the zoo.  We are members of the Akron Zoo thanks to a Groupon purchase earlier in the year.  When we activated our membership, they gave us a coupon for $5 for our family of 4 to go to the Cleveland Zoo.  The zoos are no longer 100% reciprocal with each other and the coupon is a way of helping out the members.

We arrived at the zoo just before they opened.  We wanted to get there early because the kids are early birds, it’s not too hot and it’s not too crowded.  Mission accomplished.

Although we trekked up to the primates area, saw the koalas and a few other animals, this visit was all about the return of the elephants.  It seems like it took forever to rebuild the new elephant home.  It turned out great and we enjoyed seeing them inside and out.

We enjoyed 2 perfect hours at the zoo that ended with eating our picnic lunch in the shelter.  It was a nice and active day.



Next up: workout at the J in the morning
