Zoo Fun

I don't have the pictures to prove it (Wife has those - go check them out on her blog), but we had a great time at the zoo on Saturday. It was a great family day - not too hot, not too cold, kids on good behavior, everyone having fun and nobody got crazy or hurt. I realized that for our kids, the animals are not the big deals - it is the interactive events that grabbed their attention. They loved a silly (read: lame) puppet show, free stickers being given out, the goat petting area, the bird show, and getting magnets and pins of the birds that were in the bird show. I guess at a certain age, its all about interaction. Maybe we should all be more like that, and less content to just look as life is happening in front of us.
