North Carolina Zoo

A couple weekends ago we decided to have a family weekend getaway! Some of the girls I work with had said that the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, NC was a great zoo - so we decided to check it out. Hubby had to go check out Bass Pro Shops in Concord first though! So we dropped the pup off with the Grandparents then were on our way to Bass Pro Shops! We spent the night in Concord at The Residence Inn. It was amazing. I highly recommend it, especially if you have kids! It was nice to put Adeline down to sleep in her pack n play (yes we brought our own...) close the door then spend some adult time watching tv and relaxing. In typical hotel room we would have had to go to bed when Adeline did! For the same cost as a regular hotel room we got a miniature apartment!

 Adeline had fun at Bass Pro Shops and Concord Mall then got to run around Bass Pro while we waited for the rain to subside! We ate at Ruby Tuesdays in the mall and we were very disappointed. The staff was very unfriendly and the service was slow - to top it all off the floor was so slick every customer was sliding on the floor! Here is Miss Adeline playing with the magnets at Bass Pro - constantly moving, impossible to get a good pic!

The next morning we got up bright and early and drove 1.5 hrs to the Zoo! Adeline is always such a great passenger. This trip was so easy with her, I'm hoping that continues as she grows older.

First Photo at the Zoo! Adeline has a Giraffe blanket she loves - so this was fitting!
There were lots of great animals at the zoo that Adeline had never seen before. She was in awe of a lot of the animals and had a great time.

Adeline's favorite part of the zoo was the Carousel! I had no idea she would love it so much. Here is a progression of her realizing what it was!

She was so excited!!!

Here she is on the Giraffe! It didn't move, which was great for her first ride. We had hoped she could ride again before we left on a moving animal - but she was asleep when we went back by!

On our way out of the zoo Little Miss fell asleep! She had a big day and did great. I can't wait to take her back in a few months.
