We don't go to the city much. It's just not a place we enjoy. So we drove downtown and boy was it an adventure. We decided to eat at the Spaghetti Factory. We got there at 4:15 and they didn't open till 5. By the time they opened the line was out the door and around the corner of the building. They capacity is 300 and after they started seating there was still a huge line. Our meal was super yummy. And it was and Alice In Wonderland atmosphere, with mismatched table/chairs and decorations.
After supper we headed down to the Zoo which was just 5 minutes from where we ate. It took us about 15 minutes to get in and then another 30 minutes in line to pay to get into the actual zoo. Once in we had a good time. There was a lot of people and the lights were beautiful. There were not so many animals out since it was after dark and cold. But it was a fun experience for us.
Here are a few photos from our adventure. Have a great Tuesday!
|The tree downtown at the circle.|
We may try walking around there next year.
|Little Miss liked the Marilyn across from where we parked.|
|This poor guy slept the whole time we were there. It must have been his bedtime.|
|Mrs. Clause was doing cookie decorating in the Santa's village tent.|
|The Mitten Tree. Hats, gloves and scarves are donated then given to a children's group.|
|They loved these trees. They changed colors.|
And Little Mans toes never got cold, which I worried about.
|The guy on the left was trying to shove the other off and was very vocal about it.|
We had a good laugh when you couldn't push him off into the water. So he decided to snuggle up and share.
|Snoozing sitting up and admitting defeat.|
|These sharks bounce straight up and down in the water, like they are walking.|
Little Miss said they looked like they were dancing. And they got to touch them. It was a touching pool.
|There was of course a couple of Reindeer. |
One of them had lost one of its antlers the week before so she was a little lopsided.
