A Day At The Zoo   6 comments

For my birthday, Brade bought me a new camera.  Since he’s very much “it’s your day”, I got to pick all of the activities that we did, and I thought we’d test out camera today at the zoo.  The trip was actually inspired by a guildmate who had recently gone to her local zoo and was very excited about it.  Since we had some time off to celebrate my birthday, and I’d never been, we decided we’d check out the Woodlands Park Zoo.  It turned out to be a ton of fun.  The day was beautiful, and we spent over five hours walking around and enjoying all of the exhibits. I even got to feed a giraffe!  Sadly, however, I learned that the life on my camera battery is about 4 hours, and so I missed some really great stuff at the end of our trip.  I’ll have to remember to get it next time!

Anyhow, since it was so much fun, and I took a ton of pictures, I thought I’d share a few of my favorites (you can find them after the page break).  If you’d like to see them all you can view them here - just note that some are better than others as I learn to use my new toy :)

  1. Where is the Beru? I was hoping to see a picture of you having a blast and feeding things!
    ;)

  2. Oh the one in Seattle?? My dad and I went on a trip to Seattle just to see this zoo when I was starting college. It’s rated one of the best in the US :D

  3. I used to go to this zoo all the time when I was a little kid… I miss it! I loved that “nocturnal house” they had…

  4. Wow, awesome pics! That is a REALLY nice camera!

  5. Sweet quality! What was the brand/model of the camera? If one may be so intrusive as to ask :D

    Belated happy birthday as well, really love the picture of the monkey-esque creature just after the frog! His expression is priceless. Went to Burger’s Zoo in Holland when I was there visiting 2 weeks ago, was a complete blast. I think going to a zoo or national park can be quite the setup for a great day with your significant other, but gets kind of overlooked these days for other stuff. People should go more often! Or maybe I’m the only one who doesn’t go more than once every few years ^^
