Saturday we decided to go to the wildlife world zoo in Peoria. It was seriously a million times better than the phoenix zoo. Ive never been a big fan of the phoenix zoo...i always thought it was kinda lame but now I REALLY think it is pretty lame and a waste of time and money. Yes the wildlife world zoo is kind of pricey...it was 28.00 a person! But I found coupons for buy 1 get 1 free in egg cartons...yes egg cartons haha. If anyone is looking for these coupons they are in "hickmans eggs" cartons and I found mine at walmart or walgreens. Kind of random i know. But it was well worth the money and drive. Ive never gotten so close to animals and there was SO much to see. Spencer hasnt ever been a huge fan of zoos but all day he was like "this is so cool", we seriously had an awesome day.
These are some of the animals we saw...we walked up on a high platform and the giraffes would walk right up to you and you could feed them...the white tiger was like 3 feet away from me...the black panther was asleep right over our head....
These are some pics during the first half of the day...Preston loved the monkeys and those monkeys sure liked him. The 2 bottom ones of spencer giving preston some water was sooo funny he loved when spenc would splash some water on his face.
This is me and Preston with Penquins...they were sooo flippin cute!
They had a petting zoo where you could just walk in and pet deer and goats and turtles...it was pretty sweet. Spencer took Preston in there and they both LOVED it.
They also have an aquiriam where you can actually touch things...we touched some little random sea creatures and star fish and we also got to pet a sting ray! I was scared but did it anyway and it was really neat...they are super soft!
They also had sharks and white aligators...seriously i could go on and on. We had such a fun time together...I absolutely LOVE spending time with my 2 boys!
