Zoos of North America Tour (hehehe)

It's funny... I posted on facebook today about how much I loved our visit to today's zoo. My friend, Laurie, commented "Are you on the Zoos of North America Tour?" It gave me a good chuckle, and hence the name of the post. Our latest stop on our "zoos of North America Tour" was at Jack Hanna's amazing zoo in Columbus, OH... the Columbus Zoo. It is by far the best of the 4 zoos we've been to in the past 3 months. I think we're done for awhile though, so don't get too excited.

Lucas got to see even more different animals today! We also caught the new Adventure Safari show, which kept Lucas's attention for 20 minutes! I loved the fact that they adopted over 100 cats & dogs from local shelters to include in this show.

We got to meet the baby animals of the zoo too...

the 3 months old baby elephant, Beca

a week old baby silver langur, born orange

Lucas posed with a few animal statues...

He rode the carousel...

And went on a boat ride like a big boy.

Then he zonked out and we headed back to my Aunt Ruey's house, who we're visiting in Columbus.

What a day!! I highly recommend this zoo!!

Haha! You really have been visiting a lot of zoos lately. I love going to zoos, so I'm a tad jealous! We like the Cleveland Zoo a lot (a 3 hour drive, so we only go once per year). If you're ever out in California, the San Diego zoo is good, too (though expensive)!

We'll have to add this one to our list! We'll probably be heading there at the end of the month and will have to make this one of our stops!

The pictures are so cute of Lucas! He is growing up so fast! Such a doll!

It was so good to meet you today!!!
I am glad that it worked out.
I hope that we were some help to you and gave you an ideas of what a wonderful future Lucas has.
Bill really enjoyed talking with your hubby.
Love the pictures of the zoo. I think we might try and head there tomorrow, this will be Jordan's
1st time, so I am excited to see his face when he sees all of the animals.
