A Trip to the Zoo


Summer is in full swing and we've been checking a bunch of things off our summer bucket list. Yesterday, we were able to put a check mark next to "Visit the Zoo".  Although the big girls have been to a zoo before, this was actually Stella's first trip to the zoo!

We knew that the day was going to be a hot one so we headed to Philadelphia bright and early and arrived just as the gates were opened. It was already very warm and the girls first stop was to a misting fan to cool off! Thankfully there are a lot of shady places and many indoor exhibits to see that kept us out of the direct sun. Stella decided almost immediately that she did not want to ride in the stroller so I wasn't able to get as many pictures as I would have liked. But that's okay, because we bought a membership so that we can go back again anytime we want (hopefully when it's a bit cooler)! 

The flamingos are one of my favorites...what girl doesn't love PINK!

All of my kids love the primates. They are just so much fun to watch! Stella got a kick out of the monkeys swinging around their habitats. She loved the ones with long hair too.

We saved our last stop for my favorite animal of all...the giraffes! Madelyn said they sounded like big brother Brandon when they chewed! Ha!

Even though at times, the heat got the best of us and we felt like we were going to melt, we had a great day. I can't wait to go back again soon!
