I love taking the boys to the zoo, so I was excited to see how the Denver Zoo compared to the Fort Worth Zoo. It did not disappoint! Especially the weather. I still think I’m a little partial to the Fort Worth Zoo, but hey, you can’t have everything.
Tanner hated being in the stroller and was a little cranky because he wanted to walk around like his bubba. The camels got his attention though.
Jace was our tour guide (it was like he was living in an episode of Dora the Explorer…map and all)
Both boys thought the sea lion was their Texan chocolate lab, Max. The only dog I know who dives to the bottom of the pool. I tried to explain that Max lives at GiGi’s house and not at a Colorado zoo.
Jace was enthralled with the tigers. Or maybe he just liked swinging on the rails. Probably the rails.
Their favorite part was probably the Dippin’ Dots. My favorite part and least favorite part was the Dippin’ Dots.
FAVORITE: We had to wait a little while for them to open so we got them ALL for FREE. That would have been at least $15 in zoo bucks.
LEAST FAVORITE: Tanner’s white shirt transforming to rainbow tie-dye before my eyes. He rode home in a diaper.
Although it was a pretty warm day for Colorado, it was super nice to not have the Texas sun and humidity beating us down. We enjoyed the day and it wore the boys out enough for some extra long naps. Bonus!
