8/14/17: Franklin Park Zoo Fun

We have always loved visiting the Franklin Park Zoo.  There is so much to do and see and every time we visit there is something new.  There is a little train ride around the Zoo, lots of cool animals, a carousel, food options, a butterfly landing, camel rides, and an awesome playground.  I especially love the gorillas and the red panda.  They are so cool to watch.
The red panda is a favorite of mine.  You can see the red panda right as you enter the zoo on the right in the new Nature's Neighborhoods which is the new Children's Zoo.
Here is Lauren pretending she is a Red Panda climbing some bamboo.
This area is so cool.  It is beautiful and newly built.  It has four biome-based live animal exhibits and experience zones.
Here is Lauren showing off her dance moves.
So pretty and clean!
I love this tree with a little play area for kids.  It looks like a bird nest in the tree.
Climbing up in to the tree.
It is so pretty in this area.
Here is Lauren hanging with the prairie dogs.
Another one of the highlights for us is seeing the gorillas.  Here you can see the little baby gorilla.  There were at least two babies that we saw and they were so cute playing.
This guy is like what are you looking at?
This gorilla is relaxing.
They are always so close to the glass and I love to sit there and watch them.
The Zebras are super close.
I love this guy!
Here are the kids being silly.
They also have an amazing playground.  I believe it was built in the last couple of years.
The kids could spend so much time playing here.
Here is Lauren coming down the slide.
Giving me a pose.
There is a barnyard area.
Here are some cool tigers.  The white one is so beautiful.
There is so much to do and see!  Make sure to visit the Franklin Park Zoo!
