Roger William Park Zoo






We decided against the boat today. It was too windy and grey-looking like rain was any minute. I needed a day out with the family so we surprised the kids and took them to Providence to the zoo. They had a special display of butterflies too. It lightly rained and thunder rolled thru at the end but it was still fun. I was slightly disappointed with the place but there were tons of improvements in the works like a new place for the elephants and giraffe to live together. The place the zebra were was kind of crappy but they were building for them too. We will have to go back next year for the upgrades.
We needed the day as Dad has been so busy with the Races at the Fair. I will post about that too.


We finished the day with dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. They have the best food and the cheesecake doesn't need any more compliments. Unfortunately they no longer carry the low carb cheesecake so I was FORCED to share a huge piece of carrot cake with the kids. I was falling asleep about 30 minutes later so Earl had to drive home but it was definately worth it.
