We decided that since Presley girl loves animals so much it was worth it for us to purchase a Phoenix Zoo pass so that we could visit the zoo as many times for the next year as we want. The Phoenix zoo is only 45 minutes from us & they have a petting zoo, tons of ground to cover & several splash pads to help keep cool in this crazy Arizona weather. We made a quick trip this last week to check it out & of course, Presley loved running all over & was making all her animal sounds. I definitely think Zoo trips will be a weekly occurrence –
Knowing Presley, the first thing we did when we got inside was head straight for the Petting Zoo. It still boggles my mind how much this girl is fearless around animals – I love that she is so brave in this element and absolutely loves being surrounded by Goats. I on the other hand, did not like being surrounded by them. Especially when one of them peed for a solid 3 minutes straight. Ick.
I’m pretty sure a goat is still on Presley’s Christmas Wish-List. Girl loves her goats. Presley enjoyed exploring, but definitely loved splashing around at a splash pad that was open. She is getting braver and braver around the water & I love it (it’s completely necessary during 110+ degree Summers!)
On the way out we stopped and walked through a Presley size tree-house. It solidified my wish for a cabin – I love all the wood & naturalistic feel of little cabins. I think that will be my present when Chad graduates Dental School. A cabin.
It was a great trip – unfortunately when we arrived at noon, we found out the Zoo is open from 7am – 2pm in the summer (dang heat!) so it was a pretty short trip. But now that we know, I think we will be having some early morning car trips to surprise Presley with a morning at the Zoo.
