Pittsburgh Zoo.

Sep 21, 2014

A few weeks back, our friends asked us if we wanted to go to the Pittsburgh Zoo with them and another family.  Yes.  Always.  We love the Pittsburgh Zoo!  We looked forward to this visit for weeks.

The day did not disappoint.  Holy loads of fun, Batman.  We seriously had the best day ever.

The weather couldn’t have been more perfect than it was.  Not too hot, not too cold.  The sun was out at times and then hiding behind the clouds during others.  It made for an easy day of leisurely exploring the zoo and all of it’s animals.

Louis was in high-heaven because he had to little girls to hang out with and play with all day long.  They were super adorable as a trio.  Hand holding, swinging from anything they could swing from, climbing on anything they could climb on…the works.  I don’t think Louis had a single break down the entire day.  Which is surprising, considering I was exhausted so he had to be too.

It’s nice to have the Good Zoo so close to our home, but it’s even nicer that Pittsburgh has a fabulous one only an hour-ish away from us.  It was certainly a treat to go there.  For all of us, really.

Louis said his favorite animals were the sea lions.  I haven’t the slightest idea why, but it’s the single animal he was talking about seeing the entire time we were at the zoo.  He wasn’t going to be satisfied if he didn’t get to see them.  Thankfully they were being super playful and kept coming up to the window he was standing in front of.  So his goal was certainly met.  Woohoo!
