|We always want to see what the penguins|
are doing next at the zoo
And then the household packs up for a day at the Calgary Zoo.
Everything is packed: a stroller, a diaper bag, winter clothes for three children, water bottles, and treats.
I think of going to the zoo as a summer activity.

But next door, the Johnsons have a yearly pass and that means going to the zoo all year round.
They start the morning with crepes.
I think there is almond milk and some buckwheat in the secret recipe that comes off of the griddle.
Everyone has a different filling.
Alice likes to have butter and icing sugar on the crepe, with it rolled up, cut in pieces and then a cloud.
Sometimes she is waving her hand through the air, trying to get rid of the white powdery dust floating over her plate.

|...Richard gets an out of season shot at a moose...|
Nothing wrong with that!
I think there should be some protein at breakfast time so I have a peanut butter crepe. I try to keep it down to just one portion and not three.
Michael can do four crepes on a good morning.

The day's highlight? It is the hippopotamuses who are not to be missed.
And the rest of the zoo is good in every possible way.
