Trip to RI – Part I – Providence Zoo

Last week we took a quick trip up to RI to visit my aunt and uncle. We had a car full as we had myself, Chris, Makenna, my Sister-in-Law Jessica with her two little ones, Eli (just over 2 years old) and Abigail (just around 2 months old)

The trip up was fairly uneventful-Thank goodness. We got there and surprised my uncle who did not know we were coming to help him celebrate his birthday (belated). On Friday we took the kids to the Providence Zoo. As it’s still early in the season, there were not many people.

What I really enjoyed was watching Makenna being our tour guide. She took my Sister-in-Law’s backpack (which was the kind that slings across you) and put the zoo map in the side pocket. We would get to an area of the zoo, look at the animal for all of about 10 seconds, and Makenna would whip out the map and say, what’s next? Then I’d tell her what we were going to see next, and she’d put the map back in the pocket and try and get us all to move along.

This is an actual bald eagle that they have in captivity

The kids loved these seals the most. We were able to watch them from the water tank and they’d come right up and rub up close next to the kids and they would just laugh and laugh.

All and all we had a fun day!
