hmm....If I may..i definately recommend franklin park rather than Stone Zoo. I was just there last week and it was pretty sad! still filthy and not anywhere cleaned up from the winter, and seriously, lots of animals were not on exhibit. Not to be negative-nelly or anything! Found your blog while blog-hopping and noticed NH... I live just outside Boston. love your blog!
