Night at the Zoo

This weekend we were able to attend a special Night at the Zoo. It was so much fun! Our local zoo closes at 6pm and we were able to attend from 4-9. It was so nice to be there as the heat of the day ended and not to have to deal with the normal crowd.

Here is Megan ready to go on an adventure!

There was an area where you could pet the sharks. I opted not to try. Megan and Daddy tried but were unsuccessful. That was fine with Megan because playing in the water was just as fun.

The elephants were a big hit. We had been reading a Sesame Street book At The Zoo and as soon as Megan saw the elephants she started to use her hand to make a trunk and the elephant sound. Something we had been doing everyday during story time.

We were fortunate to have free access to the roller coaster, a private dolphin show and as many carousel rides as we wanted.

The first go around Megan wasn't sure she liked the carousel. She wanted off of the horse and for me to hold her. The second time she went she liked it and even asked for more. We finished off the night with a shared ice cream cone and then it was home to bed. Thanks Mom and Dad for inviting us along for the fun!


  1. Sounds like a fun night. We're into the elephant noises, too. It's hysterical to watch.

  2. Sharks?! Yikes!

    Glad you enjoyed your outing!
