a day for two at the zoo


last summer, robbie's parents were so generous & bought us a membership to the denver zoo. 
let me say, it's been much appreciated -- we're there more often than we should probably admit. one of my favorite zoo trips was this past winter.  i'd gotten so used to going just in the summer that i never realized how fun it could be in the cold, toting around a cup of cocoa. 

this month, the zoo opened a new asia exhibit for the elephants, so we gave stopped by yesterday. it was absolutely magical, full of colorful flags & lanterns & other trinkets -- even an old, retired taxi. it was so neat...i think robert brought it up at least four or five times in conversation today, saying, "uh, I just want to go the zoo again!"
