With Grace’s fascination with animals growing by the day, we decided to take her to the zoo. She loved her first visit to the zoo in Denver, so we brought her to the Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines. For a small zoo, its quite good, and Grace had a great time! She especially enjoyed “Kid’s Kingdom” where she got to see and feed lots of animals up close.

Then on a recent trip to Minneapolis, we made a point to swing by the zoo there.
