The Oregon Zoo

The food: We got the boys a hot dog, drink, and bag of Cheetos.  It was 7.25, and the Cheetos were stale.  The hot dog was yummy, though.  We all agreed the Elephant Ear, sold from it’s own truck was delicious!  I’m not kidding: so delicious!

The animal exhibits were some of the best I’ve ever seen.  Zoo keepers and volunteers were everywhere, sharing information or offering the kids the chance to pet furs. Endangered species day brought some additional bonuses.  We earned a free poster with Liam’s favorite bird, the peregrine falcon.  We are so excited to go back on a slightly more beautiful day!  Memorial day veterans receive free admission, and the train opens up!  The second Tuesday of each month there’s 4.00 admission and kids under 2 are free.  We will attend this in June & July.
