A Day at the Fresno Zoo!

DSC_2154
One of our go to local outings as a family is the Fresno Chaffee Zoo. As members, we get to go play in Stingray Bay for free, and we can’t ever miss a chance to feed the giraffes!
We also spend longer than we should lounging around in folding chairs while Tessa – our little budding archaeologist – digs around at Dino Dig, getting dirty and uncovering a T-Rex skeleton.
Being horribly behind in blogging, we took these photos weekend before last, but I just thought I’d share some photos from our last day at the zoo with you all! <3

    I remember the first time I saw a bear at the zoo, I wasn’t sure it was a bear. Their faces look very different close up than they do on TV. LOL! xo

    Great pictures Gingi. I have one question though: why is your husband and Tessa in most of them? LOL That last picture of Tessa looks like it came straight out of an Indiana Jones movie. 🙂 Enjoy those memories.

      LOL, because I’m usually the one hogging the camera! 😉

    Awesome photos. So happy it’s close enough that you guys can go often. They grow up so fast.

    Gingi… your youngest is growing so fast and Tessa seems to be enjoying herself immensely. We have a wildlife park outside the city… my youngest always enjoyed going but we always have to wait to get a drive there xox ♡

    I love going to zoos! There is something so special about being up close and personal with animals you would never have the opportunity to see otherwise.

    Your pictures are worth a thousand words! I love the zoo … but it’s your little ones that caught this grandma’s eye and won my heart!

    Hugs for all …

    Tessa is adorable. Nuff said. ANd yes, the zoo is totally one of our big hangout spots as well. The giraffes are a big hit with our family too. But I’m a little jealous of the brown bear and stingrays, no such luck here. Sounds like a fun, family trip. Gotta have those. Blogging, who needs that? Ha.

    Oh, I love the zoo. There is something pretty magical about watching kids and animals, isn’t there? They are just captivated. Creation just blows me away…

    What a great shot with the giraffe! You really get good shots. Every photo I have of the zoo is of the tiny gorilla or monkey from way far away lol.

    My toddler will be very ecstatic to see a giraffe, much more feed it! But we don’t have giraffes in our country so we rely on photos and videos. 🙂 What a fun weekend you had!
