"Our" zoo is the zoo of my childhood. The zoo I visited on class trips. The zoo I first shared with my children. But "your" zoo, the Dublin Zoo, is truly a zoo of many wonders. It is the zoo where my one and only little lady turned five. It is the zoo where I could swear we experienced four seasons in a day as the wind blew and the weather turned from sunny to cloudy to rainy to frigid to sunny once again. It is the only zoo (and, as I've now established, I've seen many a zoo!) where we saw an elephant take a bath, a herd of giraffes happily mingle with several zebras, and truly, more animals than people!
Don't get me wrong, I love our zoo here in the Bronx and am pleased to report that membership has its privileges; we parked, visited and rode the merry-go-round for free, thanks to our annual family membership. We got up close and personal with tigers, gorillas, sea lions, a polar bear and more than a few "friendly" peacocks.
At the end of the day, it's hard to say which zoo would win the battle of the zoos... personally, I just feel blessed to have visited them all and to have five fab kids to share them with.
