For as long as we have had kids we have enjoyed going to zoos. The other day we were trying to count how many different zoos we have visited over the years. I think we settled on eleven. From Santa Barbara, CA to Memphis, TN. Living here we have two zoos nearby in Dallas and in Ft. Worth. We have decided we like the Dallas Zoo the best. There are several things that factor into this but one of the main reasons is the chance to feed the giraffes some lettuce at every visit. We took Cullen for a visit last weekend on an usually warm TX December day. This giraffe was especially hungry.
