Oliver's parents got our family a zoo pass to Columbia's Riverbanks Zoo for Christmas this year, and we've already gone more than enough times to more than cover the cost of the pass...and it's only February. Hahah. What a great gift!! Our zoo is amazing for many reasons. 1) It's just the perfect size, not too small and not too big. 2) It's only about 10 minutes from our house! 3) They have a petting zoo area. 4) There is a kangaroo "walk-about" where you go in this special, closed-off area and there are no barriers between you and the kangaroos. 5) You can buy nectar in cups and feed it to the birds in this one bird terrarium thing, hence the photo.
