Columbus Zoo Visit

I am way behind on posts so please bare with me as I begin the process of catching up!

In the beginning of June we took a trip up to Ohio to visit my parents.  It was a long 12 hour car ride thanks to all the rain and storms we hit, but the kids did amazing in the car.  Once we got there everyone was relieved not to mention exhausted.  We didn't have much planned for the trip the only thing we had to do was go to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.

If you ever go through Columbus, Ohio please make sure you stop and check out the zoo.  It is amazing.  I am not just saying that because I grew up there, but because it is absolutely true.  The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is now ranked as the #1 zoo in the country and it is well deserved.

There is so much to see there that you really cannot get through it in one day.  I am not sure we even made it through half of the zoo and we were there from 10am until 4pm.  We did get to see the new polar bear exhibit and that was really cool.  Andrew said his favorite part of the zoo was seeing the polar bears and elephants.  He is really into elephants these days.  Maiya really liked the kangaroos and gorillas.  The kangaroo exhibit was super cool because you actually walked inside their habitat.  The only thing separating us was a very low and thin rope, so basically you could touch them and they could hop out to you if they wanted.  Luckily we had no run ins with the roos and overall the kids had a really great time.

They were really neat to see. Just watching them dive under water was pretty amazing. ;)
