Yesterday was spent at the zoo with all my little first graders…it was crazy hot out, but we had a great time 🙂 I will do a full recap tomorrow. How cool are zoos?!?!

Let’s jump on in to WIAW hosted by Jenn over at Peas and Crayons!

  1. I don’t have a fav zoo, I think I’ve only been to a few and they’re okay. I actually feel kind of sad for the animals lol But I love to see the elephants!

    • honestly, I feel kind of sad for them too, but it doesn’t seem too bad if it’s a nice facility (lots of room!) and they are well taken care of. They actually have much longer lives since there’s no predators and they don’t have to hunt for food 🙂 At least that’s what I like to think- haha.

  2. A cute penguin is a very good replacement for your lunch picture 😀

    I love going to the zoo. I always liked seeing the aquariums especially because I just love marine life. The pictures of the elephant and tiger are great!

  3. I loved finding you on Instagram and seeing those animal pictures! Who doesn’t love pictures of awesome and adorable animals?! 🙂 I don’t have a favorite zoo but am totally fascinated by the swimming animals, typically sea otters, seals, things of that nature. I just think they are so cute and make me think of my foolish dog. 🙂

  4. Baha, I love the penguin picture instead of the lunch picture! 😉

  5. I am not a big zoo person but now that i live about a 20 minute walk from one that is free I feel like I need to start going more!

  6. 15 miles yay! You are rocking it!! Can’t wait to hear about that one!

  7. I hate the zoo, I won’t lie lol. But the pictures are so nice! As much as I really don’t enjoy the zoo, it is really cool to see the animals up close. I don’t have a favorite zoo (obviously) but we recently went to the zoo at Hershey park and Animal Kingdom in Disney. Both fun as far as zoos go lol. I must admit my parents have taken my son to the Bronx Zoo so I didn’t have to. I know, I lose a point here for mother of the year.

    • haha- it’s ok. you are entitled to your opinion of the zoo. The bronx zoo is actually pretty nice. I only went once when I first moved to NYC, but I hit up the central park zoo pretty often with the kids I took care of.

  8. Love giraffes but baby elephants are so cute! We’ve been dying to take The Love Nugget to the zoo! He loves animals!
