Wordless Wednesday – Baby’s First Trip To The Zoo #ww

The weekend before last, we took the family and went to Pymatuning Deer Park for the afternoon. We try to go once a year, it’s a great little zoo that lets you get up close to the animals. This was our granddaughter’s first trip to the zoo! It was a beautiful day, even though the small park was quite crowded. We still had a nice time and the grandbaby had a fun day of firsts — first zoo visit, first train ride, first time down a slide (with her mommy) and first time petting all of the animals!

      lol! Yes, they have a row of old west type buildings with a jail cell, school house with a Native American looking in the window, a covered wagon (that was too crowded for us to get a photo on), a “pan for gold” thingy, big wooden pirate ship playground and a big stuffed bear. It’s a neat little zoo!

    You got to hold a duckie AND pose behind bars? This looks like such a fun place! It must be zoo weather, we just went to our local zoo last week and had a blast. :)
