A visit to the zoo

We made a trip to the Buenos Aires zoo recently - Arlo's first trip to a real zoo.  He went bananas - it was the craziest thing he has ever seen.  He was like, "how are these crazy animals all over...and they are real!" It was so fun - especially since they have random animals just walking around the zoo all over, which would never fly in the US. You can also feed the animals, which would also never happen in the US - of course this went over super well with Ava and Arlo.  Arlo even tried the food (gross!); testament to his crazy snacking habit. It was a gorgeous, sunny afternoon at a traditional city zoo, that happens to be very old and historical. Many of the buildings that house the animals are over 100 years old and are so gorgeous.

We are really enjoying our days in Buenos Aires and have established a nice schedule on the weekends - wake up, go out for brunch, come home for rest/Arlo's nap, then head out again to a park, zoo, museum, markets, shopping, dinner.  It makes for great days and lot of exploring.

Many zoo visits around the world will be in our future, I am guessing.  I didn't get many shots of the animals, but the cute kids were more appealing to me.
