Day Trip to the Zoo

Ballet Folkloric Imagenes Mexicanas

Here's one of the really cool things about art; it's everywhere. Our daughter and grandson were visiting from Seattle couple of weeks back and we all thought "what a great day for a trip to the Zoo". Low and behold it was almost Cinco de Mayo and this wonderful troup of folk dancers were performing. We stood mesmerized for more than 20 minutes and our grandson Max was positively transfixed. The men and women were beautiful in both their costumes and spirit. The traditional Mexican music was loud and empowering. Thanks to the Toledo Zoo for such a great and unexpected time. By the way if you've not visited the zoo recently I highly recommend it, we had a blast, love the polar bears!

Nice pictures from Cinco de Mayo. Can we go back to the zoo when I visit again?

Love, Max
