A Como Zoo Day Out

Today seemed like a good day to go to the Como Conservatory. Once everyone had napped, got dressed and fed we were on our way. 

Apparently Theo wasn't done napping.

To get Meadow moving faster we promised her we would stop for donuts.

We stopped quickly at Bogart's.

Her new Snow White dress looked pretty cute under her big girl jacket.

We had to settle for the lavender cake donuts. They were out of the good ones.

Still good though.

Meadow lucked out with the donut holes.

Soon we go to the zoo and went into the very steamy rain forest room.

Theo liked watching the fish.

Meadow was not afraid of the snakes.

Even Snow White was there.

And ants.


We cut through the gift shop and Meadow really wanted this bear hat scarf mitten combo.

Then we stopped briefly in the kids room.

Meadow asked why there was money in the fountain, we told her if you throw a coin in you can make a wish.

She later whispered to me that she wished we were a royal family that lived in a castle.

Aww.


I had rented a GoPro Fusion for a 360 shoot at Duluth's Spirit Mountain. We decided to play with it at the conservatory.

The lighting is always perfect in here.

Clearly Meadow's Snow White costume was a big hit.


I thought today would be super busy, but it wasn't at all.

We watched a snake for a little bit.

Then we stopped to make a giraffe.


I made one for Theo but he destroyed it right away.

That's my little troublemaker.

We did a quick tour outside to see the zoo.

Meadow was mad she had to wear a coat today because it didn't go with her dress.

Meadow was most excited to see the giraffes.

"Take my picture."

And I did.

Back at home we had lunch on the floor.

Just kidding, Theo likes to eat his leftovers after he's done at the table.

This kid loves to make a mess.

The kids were long overdue for a bath.


They don't mind sharing our little tub.

Theo loves cooking in his kitchen.

Or throwing everything on the ground.

Then we ended the night eating popcorn and making paper snowflakes.


Pretty.
