Weekend~part 2

   Mike and I finally made it to the zoo.  They made it really nice for Military Appreciation Day. Free pizza, ice cream and bottled water. SOOO crowded though. We had to weave our way around all the strollers. I kinda felt left out not having one.

For dinner we ate at the Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurant.

   Today, we were going to be in the area of the Dole Plantation, so we made a stop there.


                                     Fed the crazy fish


   and went on a train ride

  We didn't have enough time to do the Worlds Largest Maze or the Garden Tour so we will just have to make a stop back in the future.

  1. Fun! And I LOVED the zoo, I'm glad we didn't go on military appreciation day...we drove by and I saw how busy it was and we went to the (much less crowded) aquarium instead :P

  2. We did the military appreciation day at the Norfolk Zoo one year and it was a DISASTER! SO crowded! I will willingly pay just to be able to skip the crowd! Looks like you guys had a busy weekend! Can't wait to get there myself!

    1. Yes, I think if we ever do again we will be willing to pay instead of going on that day. It was to the point were you could not get up close enough to even see the animals because of all the people. I'm excited for you guys are going to be living in this amazing place. Your gonna love it!
