Rotterdam Zoo

Saturday we took the boys to the Diergaarde Blijdorp in Rotterdam. It was pretty much just like any other zoo I've been to. Although I felt like we got closer to many of the animals than allowed at the Hogle Zoo. In fact there were some parts where the barriers between us and the animals were very small, short fences...ones in which it seems the animals could have easily gotten over if they wished. One man told us they had a gorilla get out recently. I wasn't too surprised! We had a lot of fun and the weather was perfect. Jimmy's favorite was the "alligator" (actually a crocodile). He loved it when the crocodile opened his mouth to show us all of his teeth. Glade's favorite was all of the fish. My favorite was swinging on the big swings in the play area. I was surprised how big of a play area they had. We were gone about 7 hours total including our half hour walk each way. Fun day!
