Rea's birthday is right after Christmas. We like to do something special for her, to celebrate her big days. This year, we went to the Zoo Miami with great friends. It was INCREDIBLE! What a place!
Let me start by saying, if you can, plan two days for this zoo. We walked the nearly the whole park (there were a few spots we skipped) in only one day. Stu checked his phone as we were leaving, it said we walked 8 miles. It was exhausting, and it felt rushed sometimes.
I'd also suggest renting the family bikes. We sprang for the monorail tickets ($4/day/person, for all-day use)... it was a waste. I'd have been happier on the bikes, I think. The monorail was air conditioned, so that was nice.
We spent the day walking around and looking at animals. We did not see any of the shows.
One of the cutest things, in my opinion, was the kids snapping their own photos. My monsters brought their iPods in, and V used a small digital camera. They were so excited to get pictures. They ran from exibit to exibit, squealing (literally) with joy!
And here's where we will end for today...
We live where most people vacation. Here, you'll find some things we locals enjoy.
