We're Going to Zoo & So Can You! { Giveaway }

{Insert Raffi Song Here}
{ We're going to the Zoo Zoo Zoo! How about you? You? You? You can come too (if you win)! Too! Too! We're going to the Zoo! Zoo! Zoo! }

*If you have a child and don't know who Raffi is, please look him up now. You've been missing out. Ask my husband... he didn't know until I introduced him to Raffi and now he's a fan for life.

Every time we visit the Indy Zoo, we compare it to the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo, which is where both Mr K and myself grew up going.  Every time we visit the Indy Zoo, we are sadly a little bit let down.  It's growing on us, but seriously, the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo is an AMAZING ZOO that is just that -- A Children's Zoo!  However, the zoo is so good that you as an adult see the zoo through some sort of magical eyes!  I swear it's like you are wearing those Mom Goggles... have you seen that You Tube video?  If not, here.  Watch it.  But instead of seeing bad as good, you are seeing good as good and through a child's eyes instead of a mom.  They really have done an AWESOME job!  Too bad I accidentally deleted the GOOD pictures I took with my real camera of our trip earlier this summer. Guess that means we'll have to go again.  And you can too! 

Make sure you checkout the giveaway details at the end of this post!  I've got a Family Four-Pack to the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo to give away!  If you have not been there, immediately put it on your "I MUST GO THERE SOON IF NOT TOMORROW" bucket list!  Seriously.  You will enjoy it as much as the kids!  And while we hadn't been in a while and many things had changed from when we went as kids, there are still some staples that we love and adore and we had an awesome time!    

So what is so special about the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo? 


I promise you won't be disappointed. 

The Ponies!
Yes, the ponies! I remember always riding June when I went as a child. Ells went 2x and rode Barney.  Since then I've wondered if Barney was named after the dinosaur or Barney Fife... because he was little and slow.  Didn't matter...She loved it. While this picture doesn't do it justice, she was kind of in her element here. I can't wait to take her again!

The Rain forest!
Yes, there is a Indonesian Rain forest Dome where there are tropical butterflies, waterfalls, exotic birds, and other animals to observe. Not to mention hammocks and dress up items to try on to see what it's like to be a rain forest explorer! 

The Petting Zoo & Farm Animals!
This is my favorite part! You get to see Farm Animals and you can brush and feed the goats.  They used to have chicks you could hold and all that, but not anymore... but it's all redone and so nice so you don't even miss them!  And the goats are always amusing - whether they are standing on tree trunks or pooping or trying to steal the food from you before you give it to them! 

The Peacocks!
There are peacocks running around everywhere and often leaving their beautiful feathers behind.  You just feel like you are among the animals here and it feels less restrained than a normal zoo.  It's really wonderful.


The Lion Drinking Fountain!
