We joined our friends recently for an afternoon at the zoo. Thanks to being homeschoolers, we got the place to ourselves to run wild and free, as well as got front row seats when mama jaguar and her cub played and wrestled together while we watched. It was so awesome to see. Those last photos are the kids playing like jaguars together. The Jacksonville Zoo is not just a zoo but a botanical garden as well and, though not quite as amazing as during the spring and summer months, it is a beautifully decorated, aesthetically pleasing place to enjoy. Everyone I meet loves this zoo, and I am happy we get to explore such a nice one.
