On Wednesday we took our first summer field trip to the North Carolina Zoo. This zoo is nothing compared to the Columbus zoo. It's a bit more spread out, a lot more woodsy, and a lot further. We only went through one half of the zoo (the Africa side). We saw some chimpanzees, gorillas, wild hogs, lions (that did nothing but sleep), elephants, zebras and giraffes. This zoo also has a dinosaur exhibit which has robotic lifelike dinosaurs that roar, spit and move. My little dainty princess did not like these at all. She walked through the whole exhibit holding my leg. It was almost comical. Despite being hot it was a lovely day with friends.
