Field Trip Fun ~ The Queens Zoo

 IMG_8362

We had so much fun spending the day at the Queens Zoo with Grandpa, Uncle Jonathan, Aunt Jayme and Cousin Brianna.  This is a smaller zoo and petting zoo in Flushing Meadows Park.  Best of all with our Zoo membership we can come anytime for free! 

The Queens Zoo is much smaller than the Bronx Zoo, but is really perfect for younger children.  The animals are easy to see and it is set up in a nice loop, so as you walk around you don’t really miss anything.

Grandpa brought lots of quarters so that we could get food to feed the ducks! IMG_8271Juliette walks at the perfect speed for Grandpa.

Juliette was scared to feed the goat at first, but then we found this little baby one.

This looks like so much fun. My kids love the zoo but we don't go nearly often enough.
