For Fourth of July this year, we decided to go to the zoo. Neither John or I are huge fans of big crowds or waiting around. So instead of going to the big festivals we decided to go to the Zoo. We figured it wouldn't be crowded and we were right! It was nice being able to take our time and see all the animals. The weather was perfect (we even had to wear jeans!) so a lot of the animals were pretty active too. We ended up getting a zoo membership because the zoo is so close, we figured we'd want to go back a couple times each year!
