Zoo Fun & Happy Earth Day!

Last week was April Vacation here. So one thing we decided to do was go to the zoo.

I realized I hadn't been to a zoo in at least 5 or more years. And we had never been to the Metro Richmond Zoo.

I loved the Giraffes!



And you could feed them - son feeding a hungry one:



 That is the cool thing about this zoo - you could pretty much feed all the animals:


There was a enclosure you could go in with tons of these little birds and if you were lucky enough one would land on your stick that had bird seed on it:



I have a few more pictures - I'll try to post some more soon!

  9. Zoo's are always fun. I haven't been to one in years but would love to go again some time. Great turtle impression! Giraffe's are always fun and getting to pet the animals is a plus in my book.
