This past weekend, we roadtripped down to North Carolina to celebrate Rowan's 7th birthday (at the zoo, of course - that girl loves her zoos). This time we hit up the North Carolina Zoo, and it was pretty terrible. If the Metro Richmond Zoo is the best zoo I've ever been to, then the North Carolina Zoo is definitely the worst.
The animal exhibits are spread out along a cement path that winds its way through a wooded area, which is nice - except that it feels like you have to walk a mile to see one exhibit and then walk a mile to see another. I felt like we walked all day long and barely saw any animals.
It didn't help that there were bees everywhere - trying to get our food, trying to get Wren's baby food, trying to get in my hair. I hate bees.
