Exit, pursued by a bear.” – Winter’s Tale

They say it’s the most famous stage direction in all of theatre:  Exit, pursued by a bear.  It’s also how we left the zoo yesterday.  Our day began early in the morning with a toddler’s learning class, where my son got to pet a cockroach, a toad (which is not the same things as a frog, apparently), a snake, an owl, and a chinchilla.  Then we rode a train around the park.  Next we hiked it all around the park.  Finally, we had a graduation party to go to – where my son ate two pieces of cake and a piece of pie.  But before we could go home and rest and enjoy all our animal-themed loot, we just had to see the bears one more time.  The weather was so wonderful yesterday (not too hot, not too cold) that all the bears were out playing, grooming, and walking around; perfect for a little 2 year old boy to watch and enjoy.
