Case in point: the Indianapolis Zoo has a spectacular dolphin show that we saw last summer. My mom and I were completely mesmerized by it, but the arrow was totally disinterested and squirmy the entire time. I think he had trouble understanding what he was supposed to be looking at and overwhelmed by the other people there. This year, I have a feeling he'll connect much better with the dolphins as they flip, leap, splash and squeal.

I'm not the only blogger with zoos on the brain lately:
- Travels with Children had a post recently about some of her family's favorite Midwestern zoos.
- Dominique at Midwest Guest wrote about an amazing photography exhibit at the Detroit Zoo.
- Mara at The Mother of All Trips had an interview with a staff member at the Dallas Zoo, who offered fantastic tips on how to help your kids get the most out of a trip to the zoo.
What's your favorite zoo?
