{personal post} the zoo - photos by meg hawaii photographer

We decided to take a trip to the Honolulu zoo last weekend for a little "fun day" as the kids called it.  I always have mixed emotions when visiting zoo's .  We love to see the animals and learn about them, but at the same time its pretty sad to see them confined to cages while people walk by and stare at them all day.  

My oldest was the navigator for the day and anyone who knows her knows how she loves to be in charge.  Needless to say,  she thrived in this position.  We had our own personal tour guide.  

If you are planning to visit the zoo here in Honolulu I would suggest bringing lots of water and snacks and to take breaks frequently.  There are quite a few shaded benches along the way. Also, when visiting the goats in the Keiki petting zoo make sure to put any possessions in your pockets beforehand as the goats will try to eat anything. lol

All in all, we had a really good time!  Make sure to stop by the dip 'n' dots on the way out.  A great way to cool off.
