We headed first to Stingray Bay, a new and temporary attraction at the zoo. We went in, washed our hands up to our elbows as requested and joined a bunch of other people around the pool. I was a bit disappointed. I'm not sure what I was expecting....it was just a pool with a few stingrays swimming around. Earlier in the summer when we were in NB visiting Pamela, we went to an aquarium that had a touch pool that was much cooler than the one at the zoo. I guess the one in NB had all kinds of different sea life...not that I touched anything.
Anyways, Scott touched a few stingrays, he said they felt like jelly. Logan REALLY wanted to but they said that he shouldn't put his hands in because he was so young.

We spent a few good hours wandering around the zoo looking at the different animals. Logan had a great time. It was hard for him to see the animals unless they were really close or moving but I know he saw lots. Here are a few pictures from the day.
I tried to take a picture of Logan on one of the animal statues...it didn't work so well, maybe next year!
A few of you may remember the time we went to the zoo together after seeing this sign. I'll let you know that when we were there this time, very few things were "seasonal"
This tiger jumped up onto this stump just before we got there, he moved around quite a bit up there before finding his comfy spot.
Once Logan woke up from his nap, we ventured into a part of the zoo I'd never been to before. The splash pad! It was huge and had some great sprinklers. Logan was happy to sit in puddles of water and splash around. It was a great way to end the warm day.

On our way home from the zoo, we stopped at the Rainforest Cafe at Yorkdale for dinner. Some of you know how easily Logan is distracted...well lets just say in a place that generates it's own thunder and lightening every half hour, he was the most distracted ever.
