Before I knew it, it was already nearly Thanksgiving last year before I had the money to buy our zoo passes. The Richmond Metro Zoo (which isn’t anywhere close to metro Richmond, by the way), is a favorite family past time. We learn so much there and enjoy our walks as we get to know the different animals, their names and personalities. Oh, did I mention how much of an incentive it is to get our work done in the mornings? Yeppers!
This year, I set aside would-be Christmas money for other toys or gifts-and earmarked it for zoo passes. BEFORE any torrential downpour of unexpected bank emptying happenings had opportunity to rain on my parade this year, we went and got our passes yesterday. Any January 50 degree day deserves an adventure through the zoo. So it was. We bought a zoo pass, actually 4 zoo passes, and we took to the winding paths yesterday afternoon.
I’m sure you’ll get to know some of the animals due to the we bought a zoo pass thing as the year unfolds. But, yesterday’s big adventure for me was a new lens to play with. This Richmond area Photographer has a great day at the zoo anytime my camera is attached (and who could believe my boys almost hide my camera from me? it’s true!).
So, come with us, our first 2014 day at the zoo!
PS, my lens baby is awesome, Baby!
