Grady with the African Crested Porcupine
We haven’t been for a “real” visit to the Calgary Zoo in a while and I knew I needed a monthly blog post before we head off to Montana and say goodbye to January. And boy are we ready to say goodbye to that cold weather! Surprisingly though there was almost no one at the zoo the day we visited and it was a pretty nice day out. I am not complaining it was nice to not have to wait a turn to see the hippo or tiger up close!
We even had a chance to stop in at the Administration building to chat with Trish. I know that these posts lately have been much of the same thing but that is about to change as Trish and I have some great ideas for content, like Safari Brunch! Plus the Penguins are coming and there are some sneak previews for members and we will be going at least once!
Actually listening to what the station is saying!
We really wanted to see the lions but they were not outside this day. So Grady helped me get a lion experience anyway:
Family Fun Calgary if you want to see more of our close encounters that day.
All in all a very nice trip to the Calgary Zoo but we are definitely looking forward to the arrival of the penguins. It was all over twitter and Facebook that they are in the city now! Are you going to one of the previews? Check your email inbox for your invitation and if not get a membership stat so you can be one of the first to see the 42 penguins! But don’t go the day we are going because we don’t want to wait too long in line :D
We even stopped for a brief visit to the playground, although I was trying to rush to get to the airport on time to pick up Brian!
