We're going to the Zoo, zoo, zoo...

I never understood the big hoopla parents made about their kids going to the zoo for the first time. And, like many things I just didn't understand, I had to experience it myself. It's not for the kids, really. It's made into a big deal because parents do everything they can to make their child look at the animal. In return, the child either

a) falls asleep
or
b) looks at you like "um...so?" The only time you get a reaction is when you arrive to the goat feeding area.

You will either spend the entire time searching for quarters in your pocket to supply the sudden interest and enthusiasm in your child or search for your child in your pocket who is screaming in sheer terror.

In order to not feel so foolish, the parents document it as a momentous occasion, insisting that the kids had a blast so that all the sweat, tears and exhaustion are documented as being worth it.

I'm thinking The Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha is in order for the next visit. AC baby! Anyone up for a trip?!
