So we went to the Phoenix Zoo again on Wednesday. Fry’s has been doing a “Free Fry Wednesday” at the zoo through September. The last time we went the zoo was pretty empty (though it was 105 degrees which probably accounts for the lack of people). This was not the case this time….it was so packed!!! There were so many cars in the parking lot I had to park really far away and walk. Thank goodness I brought the stroller…I just can’t carry Christian once he starts getting tired. This zoo is so huge it would probably take three days at least to see everything!
We decided to look at areas we didn’t see last time (though it took longer this time because of the people there).
We started in a more desert area.
The next area was supposed to look like a Columbian Village…
Here’s Christian climbing the cute frog statue.
After we stopped for lunch we went into the Phoenix Zoo’s “Monkey Village” which has an open area for the monkey’s that’s gated off so that the monkey’s don’t get out and everyone is told not to touch anything…not even your own face…then they have sinks at the exit/entrance and instruct children to wash their hands as they leave so as not to get sick. It is gorgeous and green inside (which is something that I really miss) and you’re right by the monkeys which is really neat. This little guy was right next to me and so much fun to watch! Then we went over and saw the orangutan's.
This little girl was so sweet to watch.
Here’s my little sweetheart peeking out of a tree like a bird. I am so glad I get to go on fun adventures with him. He’s such a darling little guy.
