Wesley, Daddy, and I went to the Philadelphia zoo this past weekend. It was the first time we'd hit temperatures in the 50s so far this year, so we couldn't pass it up. Evidently, lots of other people had the same idea, but it was still fun. We invited Barb (a post-doc on our floor) and her daughter Karolinka to join us. Karolinka and family are also in our music class, so she and Wesley get to spend a lot of time together.

More turtle and crocodile gazing. Karolinka is in the purple flowered jacket. Barb is on the left.
Watching the snow leopard pace the fence. He's usually fast asleep on a rock, so this was a nice treat for us to see him up and about.
Fascinated by the leopard.
Posing for the camera.
We took a brief stop at the zoo's indoor playground (the Treehouse) to let them run around a little bit more on their own. Here are some pictures with the giant flower chair.
