Doug and I are really big on establishing traditions for our family. We hope it will give the kids fond memories to carry on into adulthood. One of the traditions that I personally love is our annual zoo trip. Every summer for the past several years we have visited a different zoo.
This year’s choice was the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It’s about a 2 hour ride from here, but, fortunately my kids don’t mind road trips. Taylor loves looking out the windows while we drive, everything is interesting to her! Aaron had his DS for entertainment and Emma talked Grandpa’s ear off the whole trip.
It was a nice day. A little cool for early September, but it was better than having hot weather. We saw lots of animals and I took lots of photos!
For now, next year’s zoo is yet to be determined. We have visited zoos in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Tennessee, so we are thinking of maybe venturing into Ohio or Wisconsin. I guess we shall see!
