Tuesday's Tip: Going to The Zoo

John and I took our family to the zoo a couple of weeks ago.  We thought it might be crowded since it was a Saturday morning, but we were wrong.  The zoo was wonderfully almost empty.  Why?  We decided people had stayed home because of the weather.  It was a little chilly -- for north Florida, and the sky was overcast and threatening rain.  It wasn't a pretty day to visit the zoo.

But we had a great time, and we just had to wear jackets.  Actually, the overcast sky was good for Rachel since she cannot be in the sun.

The animals were more active because of the cooler weather.

We didn't have to wait in line anywhere for anything.

And I was able to get up close for pictures.  

 Mary had a great time, too, although she didn't get to do as much.  She couldn't have been sweeter.

Have you been to the zoo on an "ugly" day?  What was your experience?
