Mermaid wanted to go to the zoo for her last day of spring break, so I thought we could manage one of the zoos close by. Irvine Regional Park has a little zoo (well kept though) with animals from the western US. Here they are brushing the goats. But their favorite part was riding the little train around the park.
Most times I enjoy these little expeditions, and this one wasn't too bad. Especially once I introduced the no whining policy (you whine, we leave). Suddenly, the whining stopped.
I was pretty excited to see a wood duck in the pond. They've always been my favorites, but I had never seen a real one, just pictures.
