We were excited to spend a beautiful Sunday at Como Zoo in St. Paul Minnesota to help promote Penguins Can’t Fly and encourage people to break rules that don’t exist. Especially popular at this stop was the opportunity for parents to draw on their children:
It’s fun being permission granters!
And the results were pretty spectacular:
Of course, the ugly cookies were also a big hit, as usual.
The fun part is trying to get the frosting colors to look as ugly as possible.

The most challenging thing is trying to figure out how many cookies to bring.
This batch didn’t take long to disappear. After running out of cookies, some kids took it upon themselves to break another rule and decorate their plates!
Our friend Teresa stopped by for some hula hooping fun. She brought some extras, and had we been outside, we would have been able to let folks go for a spin. As such, it was a little too crowded for that…it was the only real disappointment of the day.
Lots of old friends stopped by, including Cristy and her merry band of friends.
Cristy (in the blue t-shirt) is the one who kindly gifted us with the handmade stuffed Marty that has been accompanying us on the tour:
As always, it was so great to connect with fans and meet some new ones!

Proud to be a rule breaker!
Dress up insanity…
Another great day!
Thanks to the Como Zoo team for the great hospitality and fun day!
