My husband and I took our son Charlie to the Minnesota Zoo over the weekend and it was safe to say that it WAS a zoo...pun intended! We stood in line for over 45 minutes just to get ourselves into the zoo. We couldn't figure out why it was so busy.

Everyone seemed to have spring fever and the same thought we had! The weather was nice and it seemed like a good day to look at animals. Little did my husband and I know that it was actually super busy because it was the opening weekend for Farm Babies.

We are planning a trip back to the zoo soon because we didn't get a chance to see the Farm Babies exhibit.

Every weekend now through April 30 the zoo his holding special activities including; tram rides, Farm Babies story time, and more. Kids can see baby chicks, piglets, lambs, calves and goat kids. They also have a few opportunities for you to interact with zookeepers and even touch the wildlife.

You can check out more details on the Minnesota Zoo's website.
