Our Norfolk Zoo Trip

This weekend we decided to visit The Norfolk Zoo. The weather was right for it. None of us had ever been there before so we decided to check it out.

A few quick shots while we wait to get to the admission window.

Miley the Build-a-Bear had to come along to see the animals as per Gisselle.

I tried getting several pictures of the indoor animals but do to extremely low lighting and the filthy windows everything came out terrible.

A cool train to ride around the Zoo(a WHOPPING 10min ride that cost $2 per person over 2 yrs old). Definitely a cash cow for the Zoo. Full every trip making almost $400 an hour! I need to get in that game!

This was Gisselle’s HIGHLIGHT of the day.She was talking about Giraffes since we pulled up to the Zoo. She almost had one actually lick her hand but some ignorant kids next to us decided to freak out and start swinging at the Giraffe as it leaned toward the walk way.
