There was a man playing Calypso music on the steel drums, sand art and a huge sand box inside.
It was such a joy to take off shoes and socks and get in there to build a few dozen sand castles.
|Baby, don't worry 'bout a thing. Every little thing gonna be alright.|
Every kid got a free pail and shovel, and we made good use of them.
Then we made our way around the tropics trail and Minnesota trail.
We even got some up close time with some of the wildlife.
Hooray for the Zoo, and hooray for Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, and hooray for my kids.
|Playing in the sand.|
|Astride the bronze tortoise.|
We had a nutritious lunch.
|Hot Dogs for lunch.|
|Creeping up on the sparrow.|
|Oops. There it goes!|
