I’ve only been to a zoo twice (both when I was younger) and I have fond memories of both visits – the first was at the NC Zoo where I was being pulled down a hill in a wagon. The second was on a field trip to the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk. I had lost a tooth on the bus, so my lovely mother crawled on the floor to look for it. I’m funny about zoos, which is probably why I haven’t been to one since – the animals seem so unhappy sometimes. But my boyfriend and I thought it would make a nice outing for us so we went to the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk a few weekends ago.
It was so hot that day, so most of the animals were being lazy, like the lions you’ll soon see. Who can blame them. We had a wonderful time though and here are some of my favorite photos from the day.
