going to the zoo-zi-zoo

While in Florida we found the perfect (cheap) special activity… Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo.
Had a great day there, Juno still talks about it non-stop.

Paid a little extra to feed the giraffes…

After it got it’s lettuce it made a quick grab at Juno and I!  Juno thought it was hilarious, I was not so thrilled.

And of course, the standard Juno moment of the day…

…she was devastated she wasn’t allowed to pet the giraffes.

Petting the sting rays!  Probably the best part of the whole day!

This time it was our usually fearless Juno who got a case of the nerves and would only pet the little ones.  Justus loved them all and was super conscientious about only using 2 fingers like the sign recommended, so they wouldn’t be hurt.

If you are ever planning a trip near Tampa with little ones, I would highly recommend this zoo!

    I have to say, that day was so, so much fun! It was great to see the kids have such a good time and get to interact with the animals! I love Junos stingray stories!
