A Field Trip to the Denver Zoo

Denver ZooA Field Trip to the Denver Zoo

Thanks to Groupon we were able to spend 5 wonderful hours at the  Zoo.  We went in late November. It was chilly that morning but I checked the weather and it promised to be warm.  It ended up being about 57 degrees, for a Coloradan(oan?) that is practically Summer, lol.

When we arrived we were all bundled up and the skies were gray, it was 9:45.  By the time we left, we were hot, without coats and the skies were blue.  I love Autumn in Colorado, bright blue skies, brisk fresh air.

There were not many people there, so we took our time, enjoyed every sight to see.  We rambled along and learned a lot, talked about everything.  We sat and had a leisurely lunch next to the Seals, they are so cute and fun to watch.  We were happy to have Cousin Adam along with us.  The entire field trip was fantastic.

After such a fun-filled gorgeous day, we didn’t want it to end so we topped it off with some choclate milks at a downtown Starbucks.
