the dinos are back!

We made our first trip of the season to the Bronx Zoo last weekend, and it was so great to be back again. The zoo is one of our favorite places to go as a family... the girls love being there, and we always have fun checking out the animals, having lunch and going to the carousel. We had beautiful spring-like weather, too, which made for a perfect day to be out and about (it seems like spring is FINALLY here... hurrah!)

The girls were also excited to discover that the Dinosaur Safari is back again this year! I wrote about our experience last year, and this year was even bigger and better. While the process is the same (riding in the back of a bouncy flat bed truck with tour guide), the story featured is a little different as are the dinosaurs you find along the way. Simply put, if you have a dino-loving kid at home, they will LOVE this up-close-and-personal look at prehistoric creatures. 

After the ride is over, you can walk through an archeologist's camp and see how an electronic dinosaur is operated (and even move him yourself!), sift through sand looking for fossils, and of course, get your picture taken from atop a stegosaurus. So much fun!


We spent the rest of the day checking out animals, hitting the Bug Carousel and just enjoying walking around outside without heavy coats on. Such bliss. Oh, and I personally enjoyed watching Husband and Millie ride a camel (though he has banned those photos from the internet). We've just renewed our Family Membership, so will no doubt be back to visit the Bronx Zoo (a membership gets you into the Central Park, Queens and Prospect Park Zoo and NY Aquarium, too) many more times this summer.

And you should, too!
