The Minnesota Zoo

We went to the Minnesota Zoo on Tuesday with my mom and it was the perfect day for the zoo.  We got there around 11am and left around 2pm. We packed our own lunch and ate while Alex played.  

My mom got the Voyager Package so now we can go whenever we want!!  It includes my mom, step dad, children and grandchildren under 18 and 2 free guests each visit plus parking.  The Minnesota Zoo is not cheap by any means so getting season pass will save a lot of money.  The Minnesota Zoo is also open all year round.  

I don't go to the zoo for the animals, I go because Alex loves it.  She can run around without getting in peoples way.  There are now 2 different parks for her to play at and when it gets warm there will be a place where she can run around and get wet.  

We went to the farm first because they had all the baby animals there.  Alex wasn't into it as much as I thought she would be.  I wish we could have touched more of the little animals.  She did however enjoy feeding the goats!

After the farm we headed to the 1st park so Alex could play and we could eat some lunch.  It seems so silly to go to the zoo and play at the parks but Alex loves it and it's a nice break to be able to sit down and rest for awhile.  

We then headed for the other outdoor trails and saw lots of animals.  

I took a lot of pictures as well and not many of the animals.  I need to go on a safari for that and someday I will, and to Alaska as well.  Those are my dream vacations!
We then played at the new park and Alex loved it.  She was running all over the place.  She played there for about 20 minutes and then we headed home.  

Alex insisted on a few more pictures before we left.  So I of course was ok with that!

Oh and a post about a lollipop will be posted tomorrow!

Great pictures! We are so excited to go to the zoo with Hailey this year. Where is the picture with the famous turtle? Haha. Can I ask how much that pass you got was? That sounds like a great deal!

Have a great weekend!
