Weekend in Pittsburgh – Visit to Zoo, Day 2

This past Saturday, March 27, Bob and I visited the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium with my brother, Jim, and some members of his family. Bob and I arrived at the zoo around 9:50 AM. Jim, Judy, Kaleb and Anna arrived about an hour later. Jim and Judy’s son, Jared, joined us about 30 minutes later.

I am so happy that Jim and Judy brought Kaleb and Anna to the zoo. It was great spending time with them and seeing the zoo through their eyes. By the way, did you know every animal in the zoo is called “doggie”? That’s how Anna referred to each animal that we saw. Both Kaleb and Anna behaved well at the zoo. There were two things about the zoo, however, that Anna did not like — the escalator and a glass cleaner inside the aquarium.

You have to ride an elevator or go up this big escalator that is on a hill to get to the main zoo area.

She cried the whole way up to the zoo.

Inside one of the large floor to ceiling aquariums was this person who was cleaning the glass. This person frightened Anna when he waved at her. Anna cried and wouldn’t stop until we left the aquarium. I was carrying Anna as we left the aquarium. She kept looking behind her as we walked. I wonder if Anna was making sure that scuba-clad person wasn’t following her?

We had a great time at the zoo and hope to visit again someday. Please click here to see additional photographs that I took while at the zoo.

    Glad you had such a good time at the zoo. Nice seeing photos of your family. We haven't been to the one in DC for a while. I said only the other day that we were due for another visit.

    I love the escalator! I love taking my grandkids every summer to one of our area zoos because I have almost more fun than they do! We have two great small zoos in our area that have so many great animals and exhibits to explore.

    I can't wait for Lorelei to be old enough to take to the zoo…and to the fairs. Our kids always liked the fairs about as much as the zoo.I feel sorry for little Anna…they can't help what scares them. And are too young to understand when you explain it to them.

    Wasn't it fun taking the little ones to the zoo??? It's just more fun to watch kids and see their expressions and hear what they say!!!!! I loved doing that when my grands were little.Looks like you had a great time at the zoo.Hugs,Betsy

    That sounded like a lot of fun. We would like to take Mary to the Zoo too. The nearest one is about 250 miles away. So, we will maybe make a trip in a year or two.

    Love going to the zoo.I'm a fan of the big cats. I sure hope Anna forgets all those scary things and has a better time next time.
