This time we got up bright & early, and arrived about 20 minutes after the park opened at 9am. Parking was a breeze and there was hardly anyone there yet, perfect! It was also super cool & overcast since the day's expected heat had not yet come in full force. Luckily, we found a trail that is usually difficult for us to find (the Tiger trail), not sure why...I think it's just really easy to miss when all the twists & turns in the 'jungle-y' part look the freakin same!
We ended up at the Panda exhibit, where they immediately placed us in front of a green screen & instructed us on how to hold our arms/hands....the resulting pic was just too cute not to buy!
Then we decided to walk back to the front of the park & get in line for the double-decker bus, to take a tour around the entire zoo... which was a first for me, I don't ever remember going on it! Kapri was clearly excited too...
after we walked a bit it was nice to sit & relax, all while taking in the scenery & animals. Upon our return from that, the line had doubled!! So, it definitely pays to get outta your cozy warm bed a little earlier if you have a zoo day planned! Early bird....worm....yadda yadda ;-)
And this was the cutest thing...little baby ducklings following their mamma...Kapri was so intrigued
Thanks for the passes Nic, love ya girl!!!
