Santa brought us a family membership to our local zoo, so we took our first trip of the year on Friday! It was a bit of a chilly day, but we wrapped up warm and didn’t get cold. Oliver was very excited about all the animals this time – he’s big enough to enjoy it all now. Avery started out with her walker, and did quite a bit of walking before her legs got tired. The zoo is mostly accessible, but there are some pretty steep slopes which wouldn’t be wheelchair or walker accessible without help.

He was quite concerned
