The Little Rock Zoo is opening its new penguin exhibit today. Last week, because I am so very awesome… OK fine, I am friends with some beautiful, local bloggers and the PR girl at the zoo, I got to get a sneak peak. It’s really quite something. The exhibit allows zoo guests to see the eleven birds from both above ground and in the water.
When given chance to see something interesting at the zoo, good mothers bring their children and have a lovely morning together. As we have previously covered on this blog, I am not a good mother, so Monkey Boy did not go. (In my defense, he had been out of school for three days with strep leading up to this little adventure. We both desperately needed a break from each other.)
The other kids loved running back and forth in front of the glass while the penguins swam around. My guess is, this will be a very popular exhibit. I think I’m sort of morally obligated to take Monkey Boy back to see the penguins now that it’s officially open. Or maybe that’s a job for one of his grandparents. Either way, he’ll see them soon.
