This was a day out to the zoo. The kids really love it. It was nice feeding the giraffes. Everything is well maintained. The swim park was in maintenance so we couldn't go there. We sure will next time!

I think a Thursday. We went on a Friday and it was getting pretty busy, then they closed the park due to lightning moving in. Sadly, they offered no sort of a 'rain check'!
