We took Elena and Liam to the Franklin Park Zoo in Dorchester on Saturday. The weather was fabulous (although it was mud season). The animals were spectacular and it was Elena's own version of nirvana.
Elena has loved zoo animals forever. Going to the zoo is like spotting celebrities for Elena. Catching glimpse of each new species caused her to shout out in glee and amazement., "MOM!!!! THEY HAVE ZEBRAS HERE!!!!!!!" "OH MOM! WILDEBEESTS, MY FAVORITE!"
It was worth every penny we spent there.
