Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

While Susan and Andrew were in town visiting we decided to take a trip down to Colorado Springs for the day. We went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo which I insisted I had never been to but stand corrected as my Dad took me there when I was very young. Never the less, I didn't remember the zoo and we ended up absolutely LOVING it! It has such a beautiful, natural setting and you get in quite a workout walking up the side of the mountain visiting all the different animals. They have a wonderful giraffe exhibit where you can feed them "animal crackers", and an awesome bird house where the kiddos get up close and personal with the birds. There are a ton of little places just for kids where they can play, there is a spray hose, a petting zoo, and free face painting! I am a huge fan of the Denver Zoo, but this zoo is awesome too and I am glad we decided to go. I think it will be a place we visit for years to come!

Olivia was tuckered out!
The next 2 shoots (and the one above) were taken by our budding photographer Abby!

All the benches were in shapes of different animals, it was really cool!

I LOVE this zoo! My favorite part is the giraffes! I want to go and take Gabriel there so bad. By the way, you look fantastic!
