We decided to spend Memorial Day at the Bronx zoo. We normally try to avoid the zoo on holidays and in fact prefer to go when it is cool/rainy/fall/winter, simply because we like to avoid the crowds. But our friend Tara and her son were excited about the new dinosaur exhibit, so we decided to join them and we're so glad we did! We visited the Mouse House, the Butterfly garden, we rode the Bug Carousel twice, we saw the penguins and the sea lions, AND, after a long (2 hour!) wait in line, we went on the Dinosaur safari. Cool stuff!
