Stephanie C., her son, her dad, and none other than Roaming Petr Penguin took a trip to the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium on September 19th and then to the Pittsburgh Children's Museum on the 20th for her son's fourth birthday. Stephanie's own words introduce each photo below.

1. "Ready to go to the zoo!"

2. "At the zoo's main entrance:"

3. "With the newest elephants, babies Angelina and Zuri. They're a little hard to see in this photo, but it was pretty crowded, so it's the best shot I could get:"

4. and 5. "With his penguin pals!" [snoop: How awesome is it to see a Roaming Penguin with a real penguin?! :)]

"We had a lot of penguins swim up to Petr and give him a good checking out, as photo no. 6. shows:"

7. "In the children's play area, there's this thing, See If You Can Jump As Far As... and then it lists various animals, and how far they can jump. Turns out Petr can jump as far as a penguin!"

8. "A sign in the Children's Museum entrance. Petr says, 'You're welcome!'"

9. and 10. "When Fred Rogers retired, he and WQED donated much of the original Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood stuff to the Children's Museum. Here's Petr with a lovely photo of Mr. Rogers and the show's band, and with the original Make Believe inhabitants!"

11. "Petr trying out the fun pincushion wall:"

Thank you to Stephanie for her contributions to today's post! :)
