A Summer trip to the zoo before it gets hot!

I showed you, in yesterday's blog, that Summer LOVES her toy elephant and yesterday I took her to the zoo.  This was the first time that she was able to really enjoy the animals and wave to them and point at them.  The other times she would just watch and not "interact" with the animals.  I think the elephants were her favorite again and waved to them a lot. 
This gorilla came up right up to Summer, but I didn't have the camera ready in time. 
The bears were trying to keep cool in the shade and Summer loved them too. 
I was lucky enough to do a few stories at the Columbus Zoo when they were installing the Heart of Africa exhibits... I learned a few things and the airplane wing in the lion exhibit is air conditioned.  So the big cats lay on it during the hot days to stay cool and it allows you to take awesome photos like this.  Summer didn't know what to do.
The aquariums were packed with people trying to stay cool so we didn't stay too long.  It's so fun watching her observe the animals.
How about this female gorilla?!?!  Look familiar? 
Temperatures heating up again today and it may be just enough to fire up a few showers and storms, mainly south of Columbus. We start off the morning with sun followed by a few clouds in the afternoon and the slight chance for rain. Once the sun sets we will see any rain dissipate and leave. More showers/storms expected to pop up for Wednesday and Thursday with highs near 90. We cool off slightly heading into the weekend, but keeping a very slight chance of rain in the forecast. Have a good one!
