Here we are all ready to go:
We arrived earlier than my mom, sister, and nephew, so we decided to explore the grounds a bit before they met us at the zoo entrance.
Highlights of our day included seeing the sloth climb a tree (seriously, we have never EVER in the countless times we've visited Como ever seen the sloth blink, let alone move), experiencing the new gorilla exhibit, eating a picnic lunch, watching Sparky the seal perform his classic show, indulging in Icees and ice cream, riding the carousel (it was a first for Drew!), and checking to ensure the baby pineapple was still growing (Olivia had spotted it a month ago on our visit and was insistent upon viewing it again).
