The Zoo! Again!

Yes I know!! Surprising that we went to the zoo again! In all fairness they have a new area opened up and we wanted to go see the new animals. 
We went into the Aviary for the first time and saw all the beautiful birds in there. 

Elena got pooped on and kind of freaked out about it but we got her all cleaned up.

Then we saw the Desert tortoise's for the first time too, I loved them.

It was an incredibly hot day and we had to keep refiling our water bottles. When we went into one of the eating areas, all the female lions were staying cool in the shade next to the giant window. It was cool to be so close to them.

Then we went to pet the giraffes, which is one of our favorite things to do. 

The new area they have is Australia, they have koalas and emus. The Koalas were both sleeping but very cute.

We did walk through the reptile area because its inside and much cooler. Our favorite thing to see in that area is the albino crocodile. I think it looks so cool.

Afterwards we went to try a new place called 5 Guys Burgers and Fries. We have heard amazing things about their fries. I honestly couldn't eat them. They were soggy which is gross to me. The kids loved opening the peanuts while we waited for the food but they wouldn't eat them. They just kept giving them to me. The burgers however, were to die for. Honestly it was one of the best burgers I have ever had.

I like the idea of being able to go the zoo during the week to fill up our time during the summer. Our 1 year pass has been a great investment.
