A Day At The Zoo

After a week full of late nights, lots of boxes and way too much packing paper we decided to have a little family fun.

As soon as we found out we were moving to Virginia I told Brandon we would be getting a membership to the zoo, no question about it. We are lucky enough to have a fantastic zoo about 10 minutes from our house and I am sure Maddie and I will be there often!

Despite the quickly warming weather {who knew it was so hot down here!} we had a fantastic time visiting the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk.

See that mermaid with a missing a hand? Yeah there are a TON of them down here. Over 130 to be sorta exact! Expect a few mermaid posts in the new few months, we have set a personal goal of finding each and everyone while we are living here!

Did you spy that lion head peeking out next to Mad in the bottom picture? No I am not a horrible mother that threw her kid in the lion exhibit, there is a piece of glass! But we were super duper close!

It was nap time for most of the animals while we were visiting but the meerkats and prairie dogs were busy!

I couldn't help but get a little click crazy with all the beautiful flowers in bloom!

We finished off our quick trip to the zoo with a little splash time in the water exhibit!
