Boss lady has a hook up to get free zoo tickets and with the weatherman promise of sunny weather on my day off I thought Diesel & I would go.
My friend Brooke and her little brother decided to come along too!
The animals seemed to be out in full force so it was a great day for taking pictures!
As you can tell the heat was making some of the animals sleepy. The animals below were my favorite from the day because they seemed to love to pose and show off for the cameras!
After a couple hours of walking we stopped for pizza and ice cream
Afterward we hit up a few of the other zoo sights, like one of my personal favorites- the Atrium.
We got to ogle even more impressive birds on the lawn.
We checked out the mini elephant museum with a life sized elephant skeleton
Diesel of course found the one football related display in the whole zoo
and lots of other fun little things
Last but certainly not least, we decided to catch the zoo train for a leisurely 35 minute ride.
We had a great time and although we didn’t get any sunshine, the weather held up pretty nicely and we escaped sunburn free!
