Just off Route 16 in Mendon MA is a little (relatively) zoo called Southwick Wild Animal Farm. We (Junior, my parents and I) took a little trip there last week when the weather was just perfect for that sort of school vacation week outing.
I think I was just seeing how he handled himself in a zoo so that when my step-kids are here we can head out for the bigger Stone Zoo or Franklin Park Zoo. Or Roger Williams Park down in RI. (So kids, if you are looking at this – fear not – we’ll be road tripping to one of those one weekend soon.)
Here are some pictures from our day at the zoo.
The last few pictures were taken at the Lego Store in the Solomon Pond Mall – where Junior got to help make a marketing poster out of Legos (and got a little thank you gift for helping).
