we bought a zoo


Or more like, we went to a zoo using our very brand new to us Hersheypark season passes. We decided this fall after much deliberation to stop getting Dutch Wonderland season passes and instead go to Hersheypark. Which is a beast in and of itself. The Fitzs joined in on this decision, as well as my parents, my sister and her family, and my brother and his family. Oh what fun we shall have this coming summer!! More exclamation points!!

One of the perks of having this season pass is unlimited visits to their zoo, Zoo America. So on a Thursday a few weeks back we, along with my brother and his family, headed up to get our passes, ride Chocolate World, and visit the zoo. In the cold. 

I had never been before and wasn't sure what to expect. We ended up making our way through it in just under 40 minutes. There are a few buildings we went in but the main attractions were obviously outside. The kids loved the wolves, were sad they missed the bear (hibernating, right?), and just hated all the creepy crawly things. I personally enjoyed visiting briefly with Hedwig...

So that's the first of what will be many many visits to the zoo. Because, why not?

  2. funny day at the zoo..very nice pics

  3. I can't wait to see all the what's what at the new place. So much fun to be. I love those how do you measure up charts. I haven't been to a zoo in years. I think the last time was probably San Diego in 2007.

  4. If I had a dollar for every time Chris mentioned Herseypark, I'd be bathing in money!! His childhood basically.... ha! :)

  5. oh we went to the zoo too. On one of the coldest days of the year so far. I went in flip flops because I realized I had no other options apart from running shoes. We did one tiny section and ran for home and warmth. I forget how to be cold, which doesn't bode well since we are moving to your neck of the woods-ish in the spring. So many clothes do I need to buy. and shoes.

  6. you traded DW for zoo!! wow!! i feel like this is a whole new chapter!!! oh but i love zoos. i can't wait to go to ours but i don't have it in me to go in the cold!!! i don't even wanna go to the mailbox ha!!!

  7. You guys are such a fun family!! Why did you give up Dutch Wonderland? Now I wanna go to HP!!! I'm sure even more fun times are coming your way!

  8. Love all the kids winter hats. Adorbs! Hershey Park is the BEST! :)

  9. I just happened to notice this older post - we must not live far from each other! We took our daughter to Dutch Wonderland last summer (for her 2nd birthday). We loved it! We're planning on doing Hershey Park this spring or summer. I haven't been there since high school - I'm looking forward to going back. I can't believe they have a zoo there now!


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
