One of our first experiences on the subway was when we went to Children's Grand Park with Remmer. The Park is a huge complex that includes a zoo, botanical gardens, outdoor theater, music fountain, water playground, etc. Since we were timing it around Remmer's nap schedule, we focused on just the zoo and familiarizing ourselves with the park. (I was just proud that we managed to get there without getting ourselves lost.)
Remmer enjoyed the zoo. The enclosures were pretty small, which was sad for the animals, but was nice for him because he could get really close to all of them.

We all enjoyed an "Alladin" animal show. The main draw were seals jumping through hoops, but mostly it featured domesticated animals. You should have heard the "ohs" and "ahs" over pigs and a cat walking a high wire.
BUT the best part by far was the beer. We bought some with our lunch and then found out we could take them into the show and around the park. What a score! It made a hot summer day much more enjoyable.

Oh, and we didn't get lost on the subway, but we did witness a fight. An old man tried to force the doors open after they had already closed, and another old man scolded him for it. I'm guessing the first guy missed his stop. It almost came to blows, but some of the younger men stepped in and restrained them. One of the men was wearing a full suit and a fedora. So funny to watch!
