Zoo Fest – Redux

A fine day yesterday as a gaggle of friends and family hit Denver City Park for a picnic and then a trip to the zoo. Three hours of focused walking, I am kinda beat today, but what a fun afternoon. Zoos are for kids, they say, but I had a great time. Monkeys and lions and tigers, oh my. Julie, Ed and Fun Shelly didn’t want to take in the bird house or the Tropical Adventures exhibit. They equated birds and lizards as not worthy – I think it is safe to call them scaredy cats. But the monkeys were captivating, as we just stared and stared at their human like features. They know when the audience wants a show. And the same seemed true for the elephant. She trumpeted and did some fancy foot work for the crowds gathered.
