So we woke up Monday morning after we had sent the older Gummows to scout camp and it was 70ish degrees out. Too cold for the water park, but just perfect for a day at the zoo. We made a stop at Ruth's for breakfast first since we were in the neighborhood. The food there is always pretty good, but the atmosphere is top shelf so it was an enjoyable breakfast/lunch.
We were on a kick about making jokes about always taking pictures of your food before you eat it so we obviously had to get pictures of the mile high biscuits.
Stella was extremely interested in going on the train. It does cost extra so I tried to get her to not want to go, especially since she doesn't even really care about going on the one at Lagoon, but she wasn't having it. You do get a better view of some of the animals, but it was too fast and too short in my opinion.
