The Zoo

The free, small zoo, that is!

There is a little zoo 20 minutes from our house. It’s free for kids, $5 for adults. We went for the first time yesterday. It was nicely kept, and small enough that within 2 hours, we had time to walk through it twice and eat lunch at a picnic table! Really perfect for our kids’ ages.

There were several species of ducks:


The crawling stage is not my favorite baby-development stage. A crawling baby can’t get on the grass and concrete (will eat the grass and get skinned knees) but doesn’t want to be confined, either. Paige ate 3/4 of a container of Puffs on this trip just to keep her entertained in the stroller!


Three blessings!


Most of the animals at this zoo were not so exotic – for example, owls, horses, llamas, pigs. And deer.


At the end of the walking path, there is a stationary caboose for kids to play in. All 3 loved it.


I actually let Paige out of the stroller – she was thrilled (even if you can’t tell)!



We found a shaded picnic table where we ate the lunch I packed. It was really perfect! Couldn’t have had a better time. We’ll be back again!
