Hogle Zoo

We had the opportunity to go to Hogle Zoo on Saturday. Burg Pediatric Dentistry was having a customer appreciation day, and I was invited as a blogger.
We woke up to a gray skies, and lots of rain. I was so close to letting it stop us, but I knew I would go stir crazy inside all day. We loaded up hooded jackets, snacks, and my camera.
We were not lucky enough to have the rain ever stop, but the kids still had lots of fun. I decided to not take a stroller/wagon, and it turned out so much better than I could have ever expected. Yes, I had to carry Sabrina a lot, but it was still better than pushing a huge stroller up those hills!! Also, no getting in and out of anything to see all the animals. 
Our favorite part was definitely hearing one of the trainers talk about the elephants. Baby Zuri is still nursing, and it was funny to watch her try to get her big body under her Mommy. 
After we were all totally soaked, and tired...we headed home.

Thank you Burg Pediatric for letting us enjoy the zoo!
