Welcome to the Zoo!

Welcome to the Zoo!

The weather was BEAUTIFUL here today, so the girls and I headed off to the Bydgoszcz zoo.  The girls had been there before on school trips but I had yet to go there.  I was totally gluttin’ for punishment because I also picked up 2 of their friends and brought them along too!  (Just a happy note, all 5 girls left with 10 fingers and 10 toes.)

Just as I thought it was a small zoo for a small city but it was perfect for the girls. No pandas, no koalas, no alligators but hey they had otters and prairie dogs!!

Not sure if these should be in the zoo as I have seen them a lot in the wild.

I grew up with these all over North Dakota.

I wanted to have all 4 girls practice their Polish, so I told them if they spoke for 10 minutes only Polish we would get some ice cream. They did it and instead some opted for waffles.

They were busy building something and now I see what it is. I cannot wait to see it!

And if we were still hungry there were even more places to eat on the outside.

Even in Poland they have these!!

Checking out the wooden sculptures.

I have been watching them build these for the last couple of weeks.  I cannot wait to see what they are going to be when they are done.

They had a great day with great friends and days like today I realize how truly I am blessed to be a stay-at-home mom with my girls!

What is your favorite animal to see at the zoo? I love the penguins!
