The Zoo

Soder and Baby checking out the penguins

This weekend we went to the zoo. (I have the feeling a few posts will start with this statement for the next year since we bought a membership pass) It was a beautiful blue sky day in the Northwest and we were itching to get out into the sunshine. Baby is really starting to pay attention to his surroundings and now will look where we point to when we see different animals. And after a nice walk around the animals, we decided we were all zoo-ed out. (Well zoo-ed out and Baby was tuckered out and fell asleep almost immediately when we loaded into the car.)After the zoo, we used a groupon for some frozen custard. It was a great adventure to find the location and then find parking. In the 'tah, we don't have to worry about parking because space is a non-issue, so maneuvering around the city is a bit of a challenge. Once we finally got to the place, Peaks Frozen Custard, our adventure took an exciting turn. One of the flavors of the day was Maple Bacon. Why yes those are bacon bits as a garnish on his maple bacon custard!

Anyone who knows Soder, knows that he LOVES his bacon so that was one of the flavors he tried. It was surprisingly very delicious. (delicious enough that I would drive back there to have their frozen custard again)
It was a pleasant afternoon to have just a sweet treat with my little family and to enjoy the sunshine. It had been far too long since I had had my full dose of vitamin d.

That zoo has really improved over the years. Remember how run down it used to be?

I cannot believe that you guys tried the bacon custard...and liked it. ☺
