Richmond Zoo

Yesterday we headed to Richmond to go to the zoo.  It was a beautiful day and we had such a great time.  Luke was really into all the animals and got to feed and pet the giraffes!  They scared him a little, he would alternate between crying and wanting to touch them again.

I pet his nose, but definitely didn’t want his gross long tongue on my hand to feed him :)

such a ladies man with Katie and Claire


Dylan was really good with just a couple of fussy little spots.  He made up for it when we got home with a couple hours of crying.  Oy.

Feeding a bird that landed on his seed stick!  Notice I’m on the other side of the fence.  I realized yesterday I am definitely not an animal lover.  And birds freak me out.  Really badly.

We had so much fun and it was such a beautiful day to be outside!  I definitely think we’ll take a trip back there when Dylan is old enough to enjoy it because in my opinion the Richmond Zoo is WAY better than the National Zoo. 


  1. Why did I not know there was a zoo in Richmond?? I totally want to go there now!

  2. First of all - no way is the Richmond Zoo better. Secondly, how can you not be an animal lover? Areyoureallymysister?????
