animals are pretty

We took a little trip to the Philadelphia Zoo last weekend with some friends — Nick got a year-long membership for his birthday last August, which includes entry for the two of us, along with entry for two guests, AND free parking! It’s a great deal, and we have already gotten our money’s worth (or, rather, my mom’s money’s worth, since she’s the one who gave the membership to him!).

The Philadelphia Zoo is America’s oldest zoo, and if you’re ever in the area, you should check it out. Going while the weather is still cool is a plus if you have the option, since it’s never quite as crowded as it is in the summertime.


  1. Cool pics! I like the peacock, bear and the eagle. I went to the Philly zoo as a child. Hope to get back there someday.

  2. I grew up in Philly and have actually never been to the zoo! We'll be flying in for a few days next week (househunting — squeeeeee!!!) and now I really want to go!

  3. @Becca, that is awesome that you're moving back up here! If you find that the weather is nice next week, you should definitely head to the zoo :)

  4. I wanted to go that one Saturday that was really warm a couple weeks ago, but I was afraid it was going to be too crowded. I haven't been since I was a kid!
