Lions and Tigers and Bears...OH MY!

On Saturday, Kevin, Brooklyn, and I ventured out to the Brookfield Zoo. It was so much fun! I was amazed at how nice the zoo was and how well kept the animals and grounds were. My favorite thing about the zoo was that, unlike the Hogle Zoo, there were no hills to hike up with a stroller and it was easy to navigate.

Other than the lack of hills, the main reason we wanted to go to the zoo was because they have a petting zoo for children. We took Brooklyn in and she got to play with the goats. It was so cute. She had a cheesy grin from ear to ear that made the extra $3 to get in TOTALLY worth it!

But all the fun wasn't reserved for Brooklyn. We also got to go see a dolphin show!! Brooklyn could have cared less, although she was fascinated by all the people sitting around us, but Kevin and I LOVED it!

All-in-all it was a GREAT visit and we had a blast checking out all the huge and unique animals. Here are a few extra shots of the creatures we got to stare at. Hope you enjoy!

That looks like a dang cool zoo! I can't believe they had a dolphin show! That's dope! Love the pics of Brooklyn petting the goats, is there seriously a cuter baby in the world? I think not. She is one gorgeous child (and I'm not just saying that, she's really and truly ridiculously good looking)

Oh yeah, and you're looking like a hot mama too. Just so ya know.

Wow, that is an awesome zoo! A dolphin show?? We had to drive all the way to Sea World to see one of those. That pic of you with Brooklyn in the petting zoo is so cute. You know you're gorgeous right?

By the way, I saw your parents and Sarah at Reed & Tasha's baby luau. She is ready to pop and she looks so cute!! Can't wait to see pics of another cute Uda baby. She better have a blog before long=).
