The Memphis Zoo

Fall has finally settled upon us (yipeee!) and with it has come cold, cloudy days.  It's hard to believe that Monday was in the upper 80's and the very next day it was a (very) chilly 50 degrees.  I'm glad we took advantage of our last teasing of summer.  I spent the day at the zoo with a few friends and managed to snap a few photos for you.  I feel like Memphis gets a bad rep, so today I wanted to show you one of our pride and joys : The Memphis Zoo.  It's been voted the #1 zoo in the nation and it's a fun way to spend your day...for both the young and old.

 My favorite part of the zoo is the animal statues that greet you when you first get there.  I have a countless number of pictures on each of these animals :)
 An upcoming exhibit that I'm quite excited about : Dinosaurs!

 In the winter months, the zoo builds an ice skating rink across from this gorgeous cabin.  All that's missing is some hot chocolate :)
 One of my favorite animals: the zebra.
Entrance into the world famous panda exhibit.

 I would love to have a backyard that looked like this!
 Because buying lunch at places like this can get really expensive, we stocked up on lunchables and snacks to get us through the trip.
 Decor for an upcoming event : ZooBoo!

If you're ever in town,  don't forget to stop by The Memphis Zoo.  Trust me, you'll feel like a kid again!
