A visit to Riga Zoo at this time of year is always a must - the ice has finally started to melt, spring is in the air, and the animals have woken up and are a-snuffling.
Every time we go to the zoo we draw. Usually it was just Tiss but now Mikus has started as well. Its a great pastime, because it makes the boys stop and examine the animals more closely. This time, Mikus' rendition of a camel (complete with a very realistic pooing action) was priceless, and Tiss sketched an incredibly lifelike stick insect. The fun bit was guessing which animals they were at the end - because I (M) had to work ALL WEEKEND, and only got the second-hand stories of the animals they saw.
