A Family Day At The Zoo

A few weeks ago we went to a family birthday party in Des Moines.  We had some time to spare before the party so we decided to go visit Blank Park Zoo.  We love to visit zoos, and even though we've been to Des Moines a million times, we've never checked out this zoo.  Let me tell you it is a great zoo!  Lots of animals, it's beautifully landscaped, very clean and family friendly.

This particular day, the weather was supposed to be overcast and in the low 70's, but the sun came out and it ended up being in the mid 80's.  Needless to say, the jeans we wore were not a good option!  (My oldest daughter was the smart one and packed shorts.)  thank goodness for all the shade trees!

Ever been photo bombed by a giraffe?  Actually we wanted this sweet creature in the photo.

Blank Park Zoo has a great variety of animals and we had a wonderful time!

If you ever get to Des Moines, I would highly recommend this zoo.  It won't disappoint!

Although we received free tickets to the zoo, this is not a sponsored post and all opinions are 100% mine.
