I don't care what anyone says. The Baltimore Zoo, which we visited back in August for the first time, is way better for kids than the National Zoo. Don't get me wrong, I like the National Zoo, I just think the one in Baltimore is better for kids. Everything is closer together and the animals are easier to spot for the pre-school set. And they have a midway. With rides. I'm just sayin'.
square tea cups!
Violet the Pilot! (I'm a poet and...)
Linus had a good time, but ManWithLongLegs? Notsomuch.
Our baby orioles in their nest...
turned into baby herons in their
ride 'em cowboy and cowgirls!
The bronze lion wasn't too hot to sit on as we left--the temp had dropped about 20 degrees as the storm (which started as we were putting the stroller in the trunk) rolled in.
But Violet was too tired for the bronze lion. She sipped pink lemonade instead.
Since our visit was free with our aquarium membership, my biggest issue with the Baltimore Zoo was solved. (Why go to a zoo that charges admission when there's a free one right down the road?) But I would totally pay to go again. It's the perfect zoo for little legs.
