Where we live there are several small zoos, and the gruesome twosome and I are frequent visitors. We have a membership to one and with our membership, we get into the other one (in Attleboro, MA) for free – so when the nice weather hits, we make the rounds. The Buttonwood Zoo in New Bedford is awesome. Like I said, it’s small, so you can blow through it in about an hour – or make the day out of it if you want to pack a picnic lunch and participate in some of the activities they have going on throughout the day.
Chris and I took the boys for the first time this spring a couple of weeks ago and they were psyched to get back there.
Our first stop is almost always the bears.
And then we head to the elephants.
