Last July we visited a local zoo, we were there on what must have been the hottest day of the summer, but we still had a great time. At this zoo you can get really up close to some of the animals, we were only about 4 feet away from the Wallaby which was very exciting, and the Mommy had a little baby in her pouch that peaked its head out. My son was so super excited. What a great experience for him. We will be going back to this zoo again, before it goes so hot.
