Forest Park Zoo
If you ever need a place to go for a day and you have an almost 2 year old and an almost 2 1/2 year old (or even if you have older kids), check out Forest Park. Forest Park is located in Springfield, MA. It a HUGE park and they have nature paths, all sorts of things that you can do there. Pretty cool place. We went there to check out the zoo. It's a small zoo (the best way I compare it....it's very similar to the Como Zoo in Minneapolis, MN) but it has animals and Little N was just enthralled the whole time we were there. We went in the morning (SUCH a wise choice....the zoo opened at 10 am and we got there right as it was openning)....made it around the zoo in probably an 1 1/2 hours. Little N loved the monkeys, he saw a doat - kept on saying doat, doat, doat (which is really a GOAT) and got to watch two black bears get there food. He just stared at most of the animals. It was SUPER cute!! By that point we were hot (two pregnant women trying to watch two active toddlers....makes for busy mommies....I was SO thankful that my mom was there and that Little N had his stroller!) so we got to go to Little L favorite part (the playground....right outside the zoo.....POOR placement if you ask me!!).
