We had a great family day last Saturday and tried out the Central Florida Zoo. It is only about 30 minutes from us and is a great find...it's one of those places that would get overlooked because Disney is so close. But it is a much cheaper and simpler, non-nap-skipping alternative. We thought it was so good that we got a season pass!
There were kangaroos! It was so fun because there were a lot of animals that we've been reading about in books...it'll be fun when he puts even more of that together!
There were two big (old, we thought) elephants. We don't think JJ recognized them as animals because they didn't move much...they are such a sight for me!
JJ's favorite thing, by far, was the splash park right by the entrance. We didn't know about this, so we didn't bring his swimsuit, but Jared kept taking him around to the edge of the fountains. If you have never been to one (we weren't before we moved here) the fountains turn off and then spring up out of the ground. So fun! Next time we'll wear our suits too and splash with him!
