I am a sucker for a zoo so I didn’t bat an eyelash – marathon on Sunday or not – when my daughters planned a trip to the zoo on the Friday of my time in Pittsburgh. The five of us – my youngest, my two daughters, my one daughter’s girlfriend and I – heading out fairly early as Susan had to work later in the day. I should have made the call that a zoo would be busy that close to the end of school but didn’t. We managed to work our way into line around several school groups. Below is a photo synopsis of the day. It was very warm and the animals were feeling it, even before noon.
