A Trip to the North Carolina Zoo

We took a family trip to the zoo this week and it was fantastic. Jerry and I have been wanting to take Oscar for a while and had planned to do it before Calvin arrived. But you know one thing led to another and before we knew it, oops(!) it was September. We definitely didn’t want to go on a weekend day so he took the day off from work on Tuesday and we headed west.

It was a beautiful day and we saw everything we wanted to see. We were sad to have missed the Polar Bear (by ONE day) but we knew about that before we left so it didn’t sting quite as badly.

Oscar had no idea we were even planning this trip until we walked out the door. Let’s just say we had one VERY excited boy for the almost 2 hour drive. “Zoo, where are you Zoo?” was heard frequently from the back seat and all I could do was smile.

Calvin did amazing just hanging out in the stroller and eating and sleeping at will. We all had a blast and I can’t wait to go again! But enough chit chat, I’ll just let the pictures do the talking.

 

Have you been to the zoo this year?

Great pictures! I especially love the Gorilla collage. I'm sure it only captured an ounce of his excitement! :-D We haven't been to the zoo this year... time has flown by for us, as well. I hope to get there soon, though.
