The Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle

Woodland Park Zoo gave me a complimentary visit for four a couple of weeks ago.

The last time I visited the zoo I was as a chaperone for a school field trip. I don’t know why I keep leaving our zoo experiences to field trips. The zoo isn’t JUST for school field trips!

I mean, field trips to the zoo are AWESOME, but trips to the zoo with friends are AWESOMER…

We got to cover WAY more ground than on any zoo field trip I’ve ever been on, and had a lot more experience flexibility.

Including but not limited to ICE CREAM.

We even got to FEED THE GIRAFFES!

WHO EVEN DOES THAT?!

None of us had done that before and now it is on my list to do EVERY time.

It was great to go back to the Woodland Park Zoo and reconnect with nature…

…and with my daughter together with her friends.

We started our day at the Zoomazium. The Zoomazium is an indoor facility for children up to age 8. The space is devoted to play and learning. We hung out long enough to check out the rock collections, to learn about a fun reward system they have to incentivize learning, to listen to and participate in a presentation (Creature Feature) about armadillos…

and even see and TOUCH the armadillo!

If my kids were little again (sigh), I’d really take better advantage of the fun treasure that is the Zoomazium.

After the Creature Feature we took our big-kid selves to experience the other hours of fun the zoo had for us, like… those adorable giraffes!
