Gulf Breeze Zoo

After living her for over five years, we finally took our first trip to the Gulf Breeze Zoo yesterday (40 minutes away)!

Philip was home and it was a gorgeous day!!   The zoo isn't very big, but just the perfect size, to be able to see everything and the kids not get too tired out.  They had quite an impressive selection of animals, too!

The best part was that at the beginning, we bought a cup of feed, and the kids could feed a LOT of the animals!

This was the first guy we saw, I think he's adorable!!

Feeding a Llama


These goats were all fighting over it! =)

Beautiful Budgies in the Apiary

The otters were one of the highlights for us, since they were so active and funny!

Not sure what this look is all about

So cute!

Funny guy

Another highlight was feeding the giraffes!

Keenan had to get on Philip's shoulders to reach

Look at that tongue!

It was so funny and scratchy! =)

"Psst!  Hey!  You know what?"
"What?"
"I like to move it, move it!"

All in all, a great day at the zoo!  There is also a train ride available, that we will do next time!

Joia, firstly, Keenan looks so old.

Secondly, your youngest is walking! Holy cow!

Thirdly, how have YOU Miss adventure NOT been to this zoo before? We went MANY times while in town.

Fourthly, I had thought the zoo was rumored to be closing. Did that never happen?
