Hi Y’all! A trip to the Fort Worth Zoo has been on my to do list for months now. After pushing all of the excuses why we shouldn’t go (It’s far, there might be traffic, SO MANY SCREAMING KIDS!) to the back of my brain, I packed up a black bean and avocado power bowl and a couple of clementines and we were on our way!
Although most of my fears were realized (it was far, there was traffic, and there were school age kids on field trips by the droves) I loved this zoo from the moment we walked through the gate. The grounds were incredibly lush and green. The sun was shining down on us, and it would have been impossible not to smile.
Just inside the gates we were greeted by the official zoo greeters, the stunning pink flamingos.
The elephants are always a personal favorite, and what could be cuter than a baby elephant? Only two baby elephants of course!
We found your usual suspects like the zebra and giraffes plus this majestic white tiger.
Daddy lion was busy doing what he does best. It must be exhausting having such great hair.
And the Rhinos were enjoying the warm day by taking a dip to cool off. We were getting quite hot ourselves and wished that we could join them. We settled for the next best thing, Blue Bell on a cone.
While we indulged we checked out the tropical birds.
After searching the entire zoo I finally spotted Minda’s favorite animal of all, the elusive painted pony!
After a quick ride we called it a day. I was one tired mama!
