Bob and I took our granddaughters to the Erie Zoo yesterday. We arrived at the zoo around 11:30 am. We used our grandparent membership that I purchased recently for admission to the zoo. Grandparent membership provides free admission to the zoo for two named adults sharing a household and all of their grandchildren under 18.
We didn’t know it at the time we planned this trip that it was Equipment Day at the zoo.
In addition to checking out all the heavy equipment and seeing lots of animals at the zoo other activities included: riding the Wildlife Carousel and running through water spraying out of a sunflower.
The girls also played in the 3-floor tower play land. June surprised me by coming to me to say she was done playing at play land. She had climbed to the third floor only a few times. I suspect the humidity got to her.
Our visit with the orangutans was a highlight of our zoo trip. The orangutans were somewhat active, moving throughout their enclosure. The girls got to see mama orangutan, papa orangutan and baby orangutan.
Our last activity was a ride around the zoo on the train.
What a nice day we had at the zoo with Harper and June!
