We were lucky enough to have Grandma Marilyn came to visit us before we leave for Switzerland, so we decided to make a day of it at the Como Lake area. We started with a walk along Lake Como. While we walked, Coretta biked 1.6 miles around the lake.
We then walked to the Como Conservatory and Rainforest Center and saw a sloth, various birds, snakes, and tarantulas. We then made our way through the zoo seeing gorillas, seals, flamingos, fish, giraffes, and many other animals.
The biggest highlight was the butterfly exhibit where there were literally hundreds of different butterflies. We also went to the playground and had a picnic allowing the kids to burn off some of their extra energy.
Here are some photos of our special day!
