It may have been 40 degrees out a couple of weekends ago, but to us, it was a great day to head to the zoo. We have memberships to two local zoos and one of them is reciprocal with the Capron Park Zoo in Attleboro, MA, so we took a ride over there. The zoo is only about 20 minutes from my house and it’s quite possibly the smallest zoo of all time, but they have a nice playground, so that kind of makes it worth going.
The first thing we came to were the kangaroos.
Next we searched for otters (and found them over to the side).

Before we left to go back to the playground, my big guy measured his wing span:

Also, in the summer, their snack bar is open. They have a picnic area for you to eat at, too. Here is the menu:
