Hola penguins!

Thanks to an early nap we were able to race to the zoo for opening day of the Humboldt penguins. Being too cheap to pay $5 for parking, I decided to see if I could make it up the 50th Street hill on my bike. Holy penguin that was hard! Never again, pregnant and toting a toddler or no. But we made it to the exhibit by 3pm and after an hour I finally caught my breath.
The penguins were pretty cool, but Brandt's newest two animal signs are monkey and tiger so we went in search of them next. The tiger was too far away, but we hit every section of the zoo we hadn't seen on prior visits...not on purpose, though--that place is so circuitous and hard to navigate! We had the most interesting conversation on the way to the gorillas. I told Brandt we were going to see gorillas next and he signed umbrella so I signed monkey and explained they were more like monkeys than umbrellas. This went on until we reached the gorillas and then Brandt finally believed me. Stubborn little Aries.
