Riverbanks Zoo

We went to the Riverbanks Zoo yesterday with The Martins (minus Corey and Jamie). The weather was really nice.It actually felt like fall. All the kids were really excited to see all the animals. We love the zoo. I don't know if you know this but with a membership you can get in to almost every zoo in the US for free or at a discount. So we go to a lot of zoos because it's free.

We stayed at the zoo for a while and saw all the animals. Then we left and got some dinner at Maurice's BBQ. They had some good food. We will defiantly go back. Then back to the zoo we headed for Boo in the Zoo. We have always went to the Greenville Zoo for this but wanted to give Riverbank a try. It was worth the drive. All the animals were still out for you to view.Plus there were lots of stuff to do. There was trick or treating ,magic show,maze,DJ dance party (which was Zoe and Karson's favorite thing), roasting marshmallows and I'm sure I'm forgetting something. It was great and we will being going there from now on.

Just a little tip if you go. Get your tickets in advance! People were probably still waiting in line when we got back around to the front.

All the kids when we first came in.
My kids with their relative. He was doing some real thinking.
We take this picture every year.
The birds wouldn't even eat the nectar. I guess they were full.
This was the gardens.
Zoe was our tour guide. She keep looking at the map to see where we needed to go.
