a trip to the zoo!

11 Apr

During spring break (which, yes, was almost a month ago!), OT and I took a little trip to New Orleans with my mom and aunt. Our families have all ended up in Hattiesburg, which is less than two hours from New Orleans, so it makes for quite a fun day trip. OT has never been to the Audubon Zoo, so a visit was in order! Somehow we managed to go on a blistering-hot day. It was just about miserable! Here are some photos of our fun!

(And remember, we don’t use OT’s real name or show his face on public parts of the Internet. So yeah, I got lots of photos of his face that day, but I also made sure to get some of the back of his head for blogging purposes!)

“Freen-goes,” as OT used to call them. ❤

Elephants were my favorite as a kid, and now they’re OT’s, too. Aww!

The white tigers are beautiful, and this one was headed to play with a giant ball, just like a kitten. 😉

OT got to pet a turtle.

And a goat.

And he surprised us with his bravery!

And then he climbed a tree!

It’s amazing how close you can get to the giraffes. I didn’t zoom in for this shot at all.


That’s the truth!

We had a great day, despite the wicked heat. We ditched our plans to mosey around the French Quarter and instead went home for cool showers and an early bedtime!

I’ll be back later this week with photos from a fun baseball game and a trip back to New Orleans for the aquarium and a music and food festival.

Y’all have a GREAT week! 🙂

    We almost went down to NOLA for spring break! My little boy hasn’t been yet and I know he would have fun. Looks like a nice zoo– me and hubby never went in our child free days. Thought we’d wait till school is out but your mentioning the heat makes me think we’d better wait till fall!

      Oh yes, you’d better wait until fall – November at the earliest! New Orleans is hot and muggy and can be unbearable in the summer time!
