Aloha Friday 5/18

Welcome to Aloha Friday! It's a weekly blog event that started at An Island Life where I ask a simple question, answer it, then invite you to answer it also! 

The 'rents have been visiting and this week we took the kiddos to the zoo. Miss M has been talking about the elephants so much it had turn into a kind of inside joke between Grandma and her. We finally went and it was a lot of fun, like usual. I'm a big fan of the zoo! I've been to a lot of zoos since I joined and started moving around the US, but the Honolulu zoo is one of my favorites. You're almost guaranteed to see some cool animal action :) 

This week's question: Are you a fan of your local zoo? Or, what is the best zoo you've ever been to? 


  1. I actually haven't been to the local zoo around I can't say if I'm a fan or not. ;)

  2. We don't have a local zoo. We go to the Atlanta zoo occasionally, but not as often as I would like to. I have no other zoos to compare it too though.

  3. We're members of the San Diego Zoological Society which gives us access to The San Diego Zoo and The San Diego Safari Park. We're quite partial to both. ;)

    1. One of the first real "dates' my husband and I went on before we got married was a weekend trip to San Diego, we of course visited the zoo and I loved it! I have a picture of us on the skylift thing right here in my living room :D

  4. When we lived on O'ahu I was pretty impressed with the zoo that they had in Honolulu. We went on a weekend and strolled the Art on the Fence, too, so it made for a pretty full afternoon. We moved across the country last summer to Virginia, but not before we stopped a few zoos along the way (we drove form Seattle to Chesapeake stopping at all sorts of national parks, tourist attractions and our family homes). Our favorite by far was the Seattle zoo! We got lost in it for hours and my husband got some amazing photos of the animals. We haven't yet been to the zoo here in Norfolk, but we'll get there soon!

  5. Our zoo has made some really great renovations over the years so it's much better than it used to be. Of course, our favorite is the San Diego Zoo.


Leaving your two cents is encouraged! Look forward to hearing from you!
