So one of Safi's favorite places has to be the zoo. The Austin Zoo is not your typical zoo, it is a "rescue zoo" and is "Austin Wierd" so there isn't much rhyme or reason to the way it is set up. There aren't neat cement paths and chickens and peacocks roam around in the shade of the trees. It is just the right speed for a toddler, and there is a petting/feeding area!!
We have had some interesting experiences at the Austin Zoo, on our first visit she was terrified of the tortitses!! Apparently they were having a race and they freaked her out and she wanted nothing to do with that.
