Why we like the Tucson zoo:
It is a smaller zoo. It takes us about 2 hours to do the entire thing.
It is a people friendly zoo, meaning the animals don't have much room to hide.
It's less crowded
Cheaper (although we have a membership this year so it doesn't matter)
It use to have a Polar Bear, but I guess it died so they didn't this year.
The main attraction: you can feed the Giraffes!
I thought Ryder was going to be scared or want to eat the carrot himself, but he knew what to do and loved it! It cost $2 per person for 2 carrot sticks. We think it is well worth it!
Part of our Tradition is going to A&W rootbeer restaurant However we can terminating that part of the tradition and vowing never to go to A&W unless it is a stand alone building and not in a gas station. That was the most expensive crappy sandwich I've ever had! SO in the future we'll be packing a lunch and having a picnic. So much more fun!
