It’s a new week with another exciting attraction to tell you about, just minutes from Eagan!  Don’t leave the kids home and feel guilty about it…..take them with and make memories that will last a life time!!!  Everyone has their favorites at the Minnesota Zoo. When you go, you might even see some animals you’ve never had the chance to learn about before….like I did with the new 3M Penguins of the African Coast exhibit.  Keep reading to find out how you can win your very own Cathycation, compliments of the Eagan Convention & Visitors Bureau!

My ultimate favorite animals at the zoo are the monkeys, always has been, always will be….however, these new African Penguins are certainly a close second!  My family enjoyed every minute at that exhibit, which turned about to be almost an hour with the little cuties (the kids and the penguins)!

Did you know that African Penguins can stay underwater for more than two and a half minutes?  We spent most of our time waiting for one to go underwater and then timing him/her….it’s hard to tell which is which when it comes to penguins!

They are ALL ABOUT THE WADDLE at the Minnesota Zoo….here’s some expert waddlers:
