Let's Go To The Zoo

So Parker and I woke up Monday morning and decided, "hey, let's go to the zoo". And then we did. That's about how much thought went into it, but it was Labor Day. We had to capitalize on this glorious day off from work. 
Seriously though, the zoo is fun. We joked as we pulled into the parking lot that we would be the only ones there without kids. And then that notion was indeed proven true. I didn't see one other couple or group without at least one kid. Adults without kids, you're missing out! This zoo is on the smaller side, so we were able to walk on foot and see everything in under 2 hours. That's my kind of zoo. It was actually hot that day in Norfolk, go figure, so 2 hours was just long enough for me to bear sweating my rear end off. 

I think the zoo brings out the kid in all of us. I loved seeing all of the animals, but I got especially giddy seeing the giraffes and bears. We both walked away wanting a monkey and then realizing we kind of already have one. Seeing those crazy hyperactive monkeys reminded us that our new pup Darla really might be part monkey. We're looking into it. Anyway, it was a blast, and we made sure to take selfies with our favorite animals. That's normal, right?
Reminded me of Pride Rock! The zoo is a scene out of The Lion King, really.
 Yall, that tortoise in the rightt picture is a real tortoise. That thing was huge! The rhino was not real, in case that required any sort of clarification.

Elephant selfies
I was mesmerized by the giraffes. They just eat and walk around, but they do it so adorably.
Bad picture, but the bears were hilarious. They were just so lazy but also could have killed us in a nanosecond, so there's that.

Have you ever been to the zoo as an adult?

Dan and I often go to zoos when we visit places, and we always have so much fun... but I agree that we are usually the only couple there without kids!

Before having kids, Jason and I would go to the zoo all the time. We would even go to the ones near us on vacation if the reviews were at least semi-decent.
It is an awesome date!

We go to the zoo all the time! It might be a different demographic since we're in a big city & it's free! It looks like you guys had such a fun day-- love the elephant selfies!

We go to zoos everywhere we find one, and we're always the couple without kids. If y'all ever come up to DC, you need to check out the National Zoo.

Oh yes! It's fun! The last time we went was with our family including our neice and nephew. It was really warm that day but it was a fun day with them. I love seeing the different varieties of animals.

What a cute date idea! I am glad that you guys had such a blast :) John and I go to the zoo a few times a year, but always with Carson. It would be fun to go just us one day...

these pictures are great, it looks like y'all had a blast! I love the Zoo as an "adult." Atlanta has these cocktail parties with the animals that I've been dying to get to!

That looks like so much fun. The last time I went to the zoo I was about 13, I might have to go again sometime soon.

How fun!! There's a really nice zoo in Portland but for some reason Nate and I have never gone together. We keep saying that has to change but then something (usually school) gets in the way.

There's a zoo about an hour away, and I've always wanted to go but I don't want to be the only single person (and person with no kids) there!

I love going to the zoo. We go to the DC zoo all the time. With the boys, of course. haha. :)

We love going to the zoo, every state we've been to so far, we always go to the zoo! We'll never get tired of seeing majority of the same animals.

We love going to the zoo for dates. It was actually our second date and one of my favorite outings as a new couple. Who doesn't love seeing animals!?
