After a late night at a baseball game, we still decided to leave fairly early and go to the Henry Doorly Zoo. We got to the zoo around 9:30, and even before we went in, we could tell it was super busy. We started at the north entrance of the zoo, which proved to be a good choice because for the first couple hours looking at animals, it wasn't terribly busy. It was when we went to the main part of the zoo where the aquarium, Desert Dome, and Lied Jungle were, we found out just how busy it really was. I have never seen so many people at that zoo all at once! Walking through the aquarium was literally a zoo of people. It was wall to wall filled with people and moving at a very slow pace. It's a good thing none of us suffer from an extreme case of claustrophobia, because it was horrible! Needless to say, the kids didn't enjoy this part much (neither did I since I'm not a fan of crowds of people...I'd rather it be us and maybe 10 others at the whole zoo, but oh well), but overall I think they had a pretty good time!
Here they are at our first stop, the petting zoo and the goats!
The giraffes...one of my favorites!
