We started off the day SUPER early since Ember's flight left at something like 6:00 a.m. So we dropped her off and then went to get breakfast. It took a while but we finally found a diner that was open 24-7 and we ate there. Then we had to wait for the zoo to open, so we drove through Detroit until we hit the lake and then we finally headed to the zoo.
It was nice to be there in the morning because before we left it was getting crowded and hot. I was super excited when I found out that they had a red panda! I LOVE red pandas!! AND it was right across the way from the tigers, which was AWESOME! We also particularly enjoyed the reptile house (as always), the kangaroo path (where you get to walk on a path with kangaroos around you (no fences)), and the polar exhibit where we saw a little gray arctic fox playing around and they have a tunnel (like at aquariums) where the seals and the polar bears swim above you!! It was great fun!! I'm so glad we got to go!!
It was just what we needed!
He looked like he was having a really bad morning.
Look at those crazy teeth!!
I just wanna cuddle him!!!
