Father's Day at the Bronx Zoo
With summer just around the corner, I've been thinking of ways to enjoy some family fun. Then I thought, "Wouldn't it be great to do a Summer Family Fun series?"
Throughout the summer I'll be highlighting some exciting places. My blog is about balancing career and motherhood (and a ton of other things). It's always a challenge to squeeze in some quality time with my hubby and Princess. For Father's Day weekend I wanted to do something that we've never done before. So, we visited The Bronx Zoo!
I can't remember the last time I visited the zoo. It might have been in elementary school. Now that we have Princess, I wanna to do things that combine learning with lots of fun. Kicking off our Summer Family Fun series at the Bronx Zoo was perfect! (even though summer officially arrives on Wednesday)
Princess is a huge fan of shows like Dora the Explorer and Diego. She loves learning about different animals. When we got there, she kept saying "tiger." We made a b-line for the tiger exhibit.
We also stopped by to check out the bear, deer, and giraffe exhibits to name a few. But, our favorite was the Dora and Diego 4-DAdventure. It combined a high-definition 3-D film with wind, mist, scents and dramatic lighting effects to make you feel like you're apart of the journey.
What a long day! Not only did we have a blast, we also got in a pretty good workout. I think we walked a few miles around the zoo. Princess was so pooped-she didn't even make it through dinner.
Stay tuned for part two of our Summer Family Fun series!
How did you spend Father's Day?
