Baltimore Zoo

I don't care what anyone says. The Baltimore Zoo, which we visited back in August for the first time, is way better for kids than the National Zoo. Don't get me wrong, I like the National Zoo, I just think the one in Baltimore is better for kids. Everything is closer together and the animals are easier to spot for the pre-school set. And they have a midway. With rides. I'm just sayin'.


baby elephant

square tea cups!

Violet the Pilot! (I'm a poet and...)

Linus had a good time, but ManWithLongLegs? Notsomuch.

Our baby orioles in their nest...

turned into baby herons in their nest.

farm aminals!

ride 'em cowboy and cowgirls!

The bronze lion wasn't too hot to sit on as we left--the temp had dropped about 20 degrees as the storm (which started as we were putting the stroller in the trunk) rolled in.

But Violet was too tired for the bronze lion. She sipped pink lemonade instead.

Since our visit was free with our aquarium membership, my biggest issue with the Baltimore Zoo was solved. (Why go to a zoo that charges admission when there's a free one right down the road?) But I would totally pay to go again. It's the perfect zoo for little legs.
Good times.

I agree with you completely. Half the National Zoo exhibits are empty anyway. Looks like a grand time. =)

um...where were we?

jk...I vaguely remember that we had something going on when you made this trip. Or, maybe you just didn't invite us...no, that can't be it. ;o)

It was Duncan's 2nd to last Friday off. It was the weekend we went to Cheeburger Cheeburger, which was our consolation prize for y'all not being able to go to the zoo=).
