We Bought A Zoo


As an early family Christmas present, we took advantage of a promotion at the Phoenix Zoo and bought a year membership. When I told the kids, they were so excited! We decided to go the very next day, just the kiddos and I alone.
It was our very first time going by ourselves and we will definitely be doing that again!
The kids were in Heaven, deciding what we would do and where we would go next. Nothing was off limits. And by that I mean we saw the elephants 3 separate times and the giraffes 4 separate times. :) I let them decide what we did the whole day.
 Spidey was not brave enough to sit with this orangutan so Petey took the opportunity alone. Isn't she adorable?
 We stayed at the orangutan exhibit for a long time since this little dude was swinging around on ropes and putting on the quite the show for the kids.
 Our membership includes free train rides and that is BY FAR my favorite part of the membership. The kids love riding around and seeing all of the animals at the beginning of the trip and then deciding from there which animals we will go see next.
On that particular day {we've gone a couple of times since}, we stayed for over four hours. We packed lunches and had a great day at the zoo! I am so grateful for beautiful weather that allows us to have a nice day out together, learning about animals and enjoying each other.

And that's how Suze sees it.
