Any exhibit that was large, where you had to struggle to find the animals amidst the rocks and trees, Little Lewie showed no interest; he also could care less about anything in aquariaum tanks like fish, frogs, or snakes. (I hope he stays like this--his father, as a teenager, used to own a large pet snake that he wrapped around his neck.)
Little Lewie's favorite exhitibs were the owl, the Bald Eagle, and the tiger. (The snack bar and sprinkler were other favorite exhibits.) My favorite were the monkeys, and my mom's trusted favorite were the otters.

All in all, we had a wonderful day that ended with a fun carousel ride. The best part of going to the zoo for me was learning how "good" my son could be...We had no meltdowns, crying fits, hitting episodes, or temper tantrums. In fact, I brought his stroller thinking he'd probably have to be in it for most of the day, especially if he started getting brave and wanting to run off on his own. Instead, my mom and I took him out and were amazed at the fact that he held our hand and stayed with us the whole time. He waved hello to people and was really just the perfect little gentleman when it came to looking at the animals and letting others have their turn. There's no doubt...my little boy is growing up!
