Today was move-in day for some very special residents in Minnesota.  There weren't any U-haul trucks or assistance from Two Men and a Truck for this move-in though.  Nope - they are light packers.

A Few Special Minnesota Residents Made a Big Move

If you missed the big news, a few gorgeous, pink animals had their grand entrance today at a popular zoo in Minnesota.  If you visited Como Park Zoo and Conservatory recently, you probably noticed that the flamingos were MIA.  In fact, quite a few people were looking for them a few days ago on their latest visit.

The reason they were missing from the display is because the flamingos are only out seasonally.  When it gets cold out, they go to a safer location until it warms back up in Minnesota.

Today WAS that day!
