Before taking center stage at the Tony Awards on Sunday night, host Neil Patrick Harris decided to take in a show at New York's Central Park Zoo.

The actor and his fiancé, David Burtka, brought 19-month-old twins Gideon and Harper to the Manhattan zoo Saturday, where they watched sea lions splash around in their outdoor exhibit.

The family might have caught a glimpse of the zoo's new youngsters: sea lions Edith, 9 months, and Katie, 2, who recently took residence there. It sounds like the actor preferred sight-seeing to putting together his song-and-dance numbers for Sunday's broadcast.

"[The Tony Awards] are tomorrow. I really should start preparing something..." he joked on Twitter.
