WBW: Monkeying Around

You don't know what WBW is? Come on, get with the times! It's Where Bear Wednesday! That was said in my best cheerleader voice, so please try to be a bit more enthusiastic about it than my toddler was.

I'm going to bet that based on the post title, you couldn't possibly guess where we went today, right?

It was a gorgeous morning at the Detroit Zoo. It was a little crowded because of the end of the year school field-trips, but as long as you can dart in and out of crowds of little people easily, and drown out the shouts of "Maddy! Grace! Parker! HERE, NOW!", then it's fine.

Our favorite exhibit right now is the Arctic Ring of Life, where you pass through a "12-foot-wide, 8-foot-tall tunnel {that} takes visitors underneath diving and swimming polar bears and seals!".

Except that we have yet to see a polar bear swim over us in the tunnel. I'm starting to think bigfoot is seen more often than the bellies of those bears. We're going to put our season pass to good use this summer though to try and catch a glimpse.

If you're local to the area, the Safari Summer Camps are about to start up again, for kids ages 4-15. You can choose to do half-days, full-days, or even a combination of the two. There are classes available for you and your toddlers as well. These programs are just as popular as the safari camps, and unfortunately we missed the opportunity to sign up for the spring sessions. I think we may sign up for the fall though, and have something to look forward to.

So, all-in-all, I will call today a success. We took the bear to the zoo (a sentence I never thought I'd say), and had a great day. Plus we found a new activity for the fall. Win-win!

Here's one more pic, of Abbey and Bear watching the seals.
