It rained for a little while, but the kids loved playing in the rain and the adults loved how much cooler it was with no sun. The highlight of the day was definitely feeding the stingrays. My favorite part was when I told Ella (after removing her shoes for the millionth time) that she absolutely could not walk around the zoo barefoot and that she needed to sit down and put her shoes back on.
She decided against the bench that was right by us and instead plopped down in the middle of a mud puddle to put them back on. And I didn't get the camera out fast enough!
