We have been to the zoo a couple of times during the winter, running from one indoor exhibit to the next. But today it was warm enough that we could walk around and see the outdoor animals, without coats on!
Vivi and Baby Hippo-we've found that letting her bring a favorite stuffed animal often helps keep sensory overload at bay, or helps her calm down faster after an episode. She originally got Baby Hippo at the zoo back when our zoo had hippos. They were her favorite and she could sit outside the exhibit all day watching it! Now Baby Hippo sleeps in her bed every night and sometimes goes on adventures with us too.
We also brought Nana and Bapa along!
Jeb loves cousin Elo, and she loves him too!
