Oklahoma City Zoo
We love to go to the Oklahoma City Zoo. Today, we went for Earth Day! We are so worn out and my lips are sunburned. And, we spent $100 on Fanta sodas, tokens to ride and jump on stuff, soft, salty pretzels and lunch. Ouch!
I want to be that mom that has everything packed and squared away before an adventure including cheap, healthy snacks, but it rarely works out that way. It’s more like, “Hey, let’s go to the zoo today!” And, 30 minutes later we’re walking through the entrance.
Anyway, we did have a great time. I can’t remember when the Zoo looked more beautiful. There were so many flowers in bloom and butterflies flitting everywhere. Usually, when we go to the zoo, we’re in a race to see as many animals as possible, but today was not like that. We spent most of our time in the Children’s Zoo (I have fallen in love with a goat) and around the rides and amusements.
In the spirit of Earth Day, here are some of my favorite pictures from the day.
Let’s make like fabric softener and snuggle.

Pineapple Fanta. Who is responsible for this?
I’m guessing sunbathing naked to avoid tan lines.
Juey with a J. Sometimes, I see her out of the corner of my eye and I think I’m seeing myself!!!

Hotels Near the OKC Zoo
There are several hotels near the OKC Zoo. As a local who knows the territory, I would stay at a hotel on Northwest Expressway. Just stay east of May Avenue and you’ll be pretty close to the zoo! I recommend
Holiday Inn Express on Northwest Expressway (As a bonus they have an indoor pool.)
