A Day at the Zoo

Recently we got to spend the day down in Iowa with family, and our adventure for the day was the zoo! We visited the Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines, and it was a really sweet day! Sophie’s favorite part was getting to feed a giraffe, but the whole zoo was all interesting and exciting to her anyway! 🙂 It’s so fun because she loves reading about animals at home, but then she gets extra excited when she sees them at the zoo in real life!

Sophie and her cousin Mia got to wear matching “sister” outfits from Giggle Moon – it was so cute to see them together! 😀

In the past, when we’ve gone to things like zoos, I’ve focused more on taking photos of the cool animals…but I’ve regretted that because, well, I’m not a wildlife photographer. 😉 This time, I wanted to focus instead on the people and how much fun they were having! I’m glad I did. 🙂

It was such a sweet day spent exploring the zoo with family! The Blank Park Zoo is a beautiful zoo with lots to see, and we’d definitely love to come back someday!

We love zoos! What’s your family’s favorite zoo near you??


  1. Awh–fun to see you were in my neighborhood even if I didn’t know, haha! BPZ is such a great zoo! They do great things for conservation. 🙂
