Nashville Zoo Summer 2011

Today we went to the Nashville zoo, just the girls and I. I was worried about it being a handful…Callie is 15 months and Mary James is a month shy of three and newly potty trained…but it went great!!

We started off at the petting zoo, Mary James’ request.


We rode the train, which went behind the zebra/ ostrich habitat.


We saw clouded leopard cubs, a cougar, lemurs, red pandas, lynx, tigers, monkeys, flamingos, and a Clydesdale horse!

We also rode on the carousel, which Callie absolutely loved!! She fussed when we left. ;). Mary James rode the cheetah again and Callie rode the monitor lizard (it was right next to the cheetah, so I could hold them both.


I brought our lunch and we had our “picnic” inside the little cafe there, because it was excruciatingly hot!! 98F by the car thermometer!! Whew!

Mary James played a little on the huge playground and then we headed home.

It was a wonderful day!
