I've been meaning to post pictures from our trip to the zoo on Monday. There's a fantastic little zoo in St. Paul, Minnesota, called The Como Zoo. It's free admission, although donations are strongly encouraged. It's a great little zoo, with a good variety of animals, including lots of monkeys. The monkeys make my children happy! Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of the animals this time around. That doesn't mean I didn't get some great pictures though. You see, my favorite part of this zoo is the conservatory. It's gorgeous! There's green stuff everywhere, which is a treat for the eyes in the middle of winter when everything is gray. All of the pictures I took this time were in one specific room in the conservatory. It's THE. BEST. PART. OF. THE. ZOO! You'll see why:
Total picture overload, but it's so worth it, isn't it? The flowers are gorgeous, there's sun everywhere, there are koi swimming in the water. It's just a beautiful place and gives such a lift to your spirits. Good thing it's open year-round and we have a nice little oasis to visit in the middle of winter!
