A Trip to the Zoo!

It was Memorial Weekend and so we decided to take a family trip to the Phoenix Zoo. Since it is so close to where we live and very kid friendly, we decided to get an annual pass for the whole family to enjoy. So we set out in the 105 degree heat, packed with LOTS of sun screen, baby hats and plenty of cold drinks. When you live in Arizona, you have to be prepared when you venture outside in the heat during the summer. Well, it was SOOOOO much fun! Blaze actually looked at all of the animals and smiled and watched intently as they moved around in their enclosures. He really enjoyed the petting zoo and the goats, getting up close and personal with them. There will be so much more for him to do in the years to come, a spray ground water play area, lots of educational programs, even being able to ride your bikes through the zoo grounds, and so much more. Blaze got to enjoy his first snow cone, and even tiny bits of Mommy's chicken fingers and fries. What a great day!
