The highlight of the trip was the new baby hippo, Buttons, and his mom. When we got to their tank, we thought it was all fish. However, as we moved around, we saw two rock-like mounds in the water that we quickly found out were hippos. We showed the kids the backs of them, I don't think they really understood what they were, until they moved. Buttons decided to put on a show and swim circles in the tank. Soon after, mom followed and began swimming and spinning all over the place, making sure to swim right up to the front of the glass and look us straight in the eye. I think we all could have stayed there all day!
