We went to the zoo on Labor Day because the weather here in Missouri was gorgeous! We'd been saving our discount ticket for a day when walking around in the sun for three hours wouldn't cause us to melt and suddenly that day was here! More on the actual trip in the next post.
I changed a few times because I didn't really know how to dress for this cooler weather. I usually get overambitious at the first hint of crisp, morning air and dress for the middle of winter. I decided to be sensible and skip the tights but take a cardigan. Oh, and wear the hair down. Which brings me to my next segment...
About two hours into our zoo day the sun started beating down and coaxed us out of our layers. I started to heat up pushing the stroller up and down the walkways and my legs started sticking to my boots. You know the feeling.
Getting long hair off of your neck can mean the difference between a happy mama that lets you watch the river otters just a little bit longer and a cranky ride home. And those river otters are so cute!
What would you wear to the zoo if you, too, had near perfect weather?
