Calm Weekend

For the first time in a few weeks there were no big plans for the weekend. It was chill time! It was a nice feeling to not have any pressing concerns and just sit on the patio reading the paper. The fruit harvest was the only thing on Saturday. On Sunday I wanted to go to the zoo to renew our memberships. So after a breakfast at a nearby Mexican restaurant, we headed over. Even though we were there fairly early, the place was already getting packed. With new membership cards in paw, we headed in to check out the new penguin exhibit. It was a very nice facility with several species living side by side. There is a huge pool for them to swim in, and boy it seemed like they loved it. I almost freaked out as I was walking and thought I was going to fall into the pool. They installed glass panels in the floor so you can see the penguins zooming right below your feet. The exhibit is a very nice addition to the zoo. After a quick check of the polar bears and big cats, we headed on home.
