Our Spring Break Zoo Trip
March 17, 2008 by 5 Comments
Today was Day One of Spring Break so I loaded up the Fabulous Four and we took a mini road trip and headed to Gainesville, TX, to check out the Frank Buck Zoo. In honor of Frank’s birthday, admission today was a buck! They also handed out plastic animal rings and cupcakes as we walked through the gate. You can’t beat that. The weather held up for us and we had a great time, wandering around the small zoo, seeing animals up close, and feeding the goats in the petting zoo, as well as the giraffes.
The giraffe feeding was a highlight! Lila preferred to watch from a distance and only wanted to wave bye-bye to the giraffes at the end, but the other kids loved it! Luke squealed with delight throughout most of the feeding. Seeing those enormous tongues sticking through the fence was just funny!
We’ve wanted to check out the Frank Buck Zoo for a while and we’re so glad we did. A small zoo but definitely worth the visit.
