We bought a zoo pass with our tax return this year and it has been seriously the best investment. We go to the zoo all the time and it has more than paid for itself. It’s also nice not feeling the pressure to see the whole zoo at once just because you paid for the day and it’s expensive to pay for the day.
Anyways, our zoo has a summer concert series called Sunset Zoofari! And so I decided this would be a perfect fit for enjoy the sound. Not to mention, there are so many other sounds at the zoo as well – the sounds of all the animals! I loved listening to the music in the background as we enjoyed looking at the animals. And we spent a lot of time in the aviary (bird building) this time, so we got to hear a lot of really wonderful bird calls. It was really fun because the cards identifying the birds are right at Dominic’s level, so he would see the birds in the cages (for lack of a better word – though they use special tension wire so that you can not only see the birds but hear them as well) and look for the matching bird on the card.
All in all, a fun evening! I really enjoyed the music, they played a lot of things that I knew, and Dominic really enjoyed the zoo, as always. And Allen took it all in riding safe on mom.
By the way, if you are thinking of going to the Sunset Zoofari, it’s most Wednesday nights throughout the summer at the Milwaukee County Zoo. The last one for the summer is next week and it’s Blue Light Scene providing the music (or sound 😉 ) with hits of yesterday and today.
