Trip to the Zoo

We went to the NC Zoo in Asheboro on Memorial Day with some friends of ours. We had a great time, even if was VERY hot and humid. I know, what else can you expect in late May in NC. The zoo is divided up onto two sections - North America and Africa. We started out in North America.

Joey spent most of the time traveling like this, even though we brought the stroller. Poor Brian! But he definitely got some exercise.
Joey checking out some of the big cats
Another favorite mode of transportation for Joey . . . running!
More running
The polar bear was one of Joey's favorites
Some bison. Sorry they're kind of hard to see.

The Sonora Desert. Not my favorite part of the zoo . . . too many snakes!
After we left the desert, we entered the Africa portion of the zoo


Zebras and giraffes. We also saw some gorillas and monkeys, but didn't get a good shot of them. We were exhausted by this point (it was over 5 miles one way and had taken about 3-4 hours), so we decided to call it a day. We plan to go back some time in July, so hopefully we'll have more Africa pictures then.
