Jimenez Family Zoo Tour - Jacksonville Zoo

All about that bump...
34 weeks! 
Our third and final Zoo for the tour was the Jacksonville Zoo. We woke up a little later than we wanted, BUT our little lady was SO exhausted so it was nice to get some extra sleep.

When we arrived at the Jacksonville Zoo I was so excited, it was really big and organized, and pretty!   To be honest, it felt like we were standing in line to go to Busch Gardens.  It was also exciting to watch our Little Lady excitedly run into the zoo. By the time we made it to this zoo, she was a pro!

She would run from exhibit to exhibit to and shout "Dadda, Dadda" and point. I LOVED it! Chris and I love to go to the zoo, we love to walk around and see the animals and just enjoy a relaxing day together. There is nothing more magical than seeing your daughter enjoy the same things that you love.

Elephants!
Mommy's favorite exhibit at the Zoo.
The Giraffe Exhibit
Snack Break! 
We spent about 7 hours at the zoo, and just barely made it through all the exhibits before the zoo closed. Thankfully the zoo was well organized with one main road through the center with several loops of animals to look at.

Some of our favorite exhibits included:

  • Giraffes
  • Elephants
  • Aviary (not my favorite, because I'm scared of birds)
  • Leopard 
  • Zebra
Planning our next stop! 
Petting Zoo!

She LOVED petting the "dogs" at the Zoo. 
One tired little lady! 

Our Honeymoon
St. Augustine
December 2008
After Jacksonville we realized we were only about an hour from St. Augustine and... we had a rental car...so it wasn't miles on our car...and Little Lady would LOVE the Fort... 

Okay, really... she was asleep in the car and we really didn't want to just go back to the hotel at 5 p.m., so we decided to go soak in some more vacation in St. Augustine. We went there on our Honeymoon and just love the city, so we decided to go enjoy the evening together.

It was great, we loved spending the evening together and with our daughter. I can hardly believe that that will be our last get-away adventure as a family of three before our love bug arrives! I'm excited for our family and looking forward to the arrival of our Love Bug in just a few weeks!
