It was 22° and lightly snowing. What should we do on this Saturday Afternoon. Go to the Zoo, of course. My son and his BFF walked over to the Prospect Park Zoo.
did not mind the cold
But the best thing about going to the zoo in the winter is the staff. We were there from 2pm till closing at 4:30 and it was clear that the staff outnumbered the visitors. The did not hover over us, but it was so clear that they appreciated some human interaction in the dead of winter.
The sea loin feeding is so much more fun when the explainer does not need a microphone because there are only 7 people watching. We attended the live animal encounter and I can honestly say that for the first time in my 46 year life I touched a rabbit. But the real cool part was that the 2 kids I came with were half the kids in the classroom.
