The other day I received an email from the Cincinnati Zoo that said: "Come to the Zoo and watch our penguins parade daily at 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.! Now through February 28." OK, I HATE birds, but penguins have always had a special place in my heart, I remember spending hours at the zoo as a kid with my younger brother, just waiting by their tank and HOPING that they would jump in the water (they never seemed to). I couldn't believe that I would have the opportunity to stand just feet from these majestic creatures! I wrangled my friend Nancy into joining me! Below are the pictures I took, not the greatest, but it certainly captured a memory I will hold onto forever! Turned out that I got even closer than I ever thought I would, just inches from them, I could have touched them if I hadn't been so busy taking pictures. Now that I know the route and where to stand, I plan to take the kids down to watch the penguin parade! Luke loves watching the video and looking at my pictures, I can't wait to see how he reacts to seeing them in person!
Here is the youtube video that the zoo made:
