how to have a scavenger hunt zoo date:

1. go online and google your closest zoo -- ours happens to the be the Lincoln Park zoo in Chicago. It is also free. Score!

2. Write down a list of attractions. They can be anything. Ours included a bird with a moustache, squirrels eating human food, a more birds this way sign, and your evil animal mascot if you were a super villain.

3. go to the zoo.

4. search for the things on your list and take pictures along the way!


p.s. michael totally came up with this idea himself. color me impressed.
