The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens

We had a wonderful family day yesterday.  My mom is here visiting and we celebrated my son's birthday a little early with an outing to the zoo. 

The Cincinnati Zoo is a beautiful place to visit.  The grounds are lushly landscaped and the new animal exhibits are fun to walk through.  We spent the majority of the day there and still didn't get to see everything! 

I did catch a pretty bloom that hadn't yet lost it's summer luster...

And a couple of items that spoke of Fall...

We also had a hungry peacock, who had no fear, come right up to our lunch table looking for scraps.  We did indulge him and gave him a few of our fresh cut fries. 

But, I think the highlight of the day was seeing Dora and Diego in their 4D adventure.  What fun!

All in all a superb day!
