On Saturday morning, we took Lemon to the busy downtown farmer's market to see Cows on the Concourse. He had been talking about seeing the cows all morning, so we thought he'd be thrilled, but when we got to the actual cows, he looked at them with a disdainful expression for a few seconds and then hurried off to find some trucks to look at.
We had a much more successful animal encounter on Sunday, when we took Lemon to see the new Arctic Passage exhibit at our zoo. He loved the polar bear and the seals, but most of all he loved the Tundra Buggy vehicle that was on display near them. In addition to being huge and having giant wheels, it is surrounded by a bed of small gravel that can be picked up and dropped through a fence. Pretty much heaven, if you asked Lemon.
