Off to the Zoo

As many of you know we are a family that LOVES the Zoo. Our kids are a great age for it, and I think it's just a great way to spend a day. We went to the North Carolina in Asheboro. This zoo is really cool because they have it set up in real habitats. So instead of a small cage for the animal they get a really big place to walk around.. There were two sections to the zoo, the North America side and the Africa side. We went to the latter.

We thought about just having the bays walk but we decided that we would rent a stroller and push them around. It ended up being a really good idea.

We went by the lions and they were up and walking around. this is sad but I have never seen an active lion in a zoo before. Most of the time they are in the shade sleeping {not that I blame them}

The funniest thing was watching one of the elephants. He was splashing water all over himself, and then he got into his pond for a swim. It was great.

The boys both were hatched and
Tim had a nap.... see, the stroller was a good idea. Tim is 36lbs of dead weight when he is asleep.{yes people, I said 36 pounds!}

The humidity was not so bad here. And walking around wasn't really all that bad. There were so many trees to shade the path.

So this Zoo definitely gets 10 thumbs up. {even from the sleeping one}

That looks like so much fun! Strollers are definately great when there is a lot of walking. My oldest still tries to ride, or wishes he could ride! He is 80 lbs and definately outgrown the stroller!
