Field Trip: Columbus Zoo & Aquarium August 9, 2011

Today, we decided to head to the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium with some friends for some socialization time with the kids (as well as a fun outing!)  The Columbus Zoo is a very nice zoo, but very big, so even in the 5 hours we were there, we didn’t come close to seeing everything.  Now, that also might have been in part due to the 20 zillion bathroom trips the kids needed (it was hot and they were chugging the water!) and also due in part to the polar bears being so entertaining that the kids wanted to stay in that one exhibit for well over an hour.  But regardless, we saw about half of the zoo, and the kids had a blast!
