Miami Metro Zoo

Yesterday we had a great time at the Miami Metro Zoo, we were there 5 hours, it was much bigger than we expected. I took over 700 photos of the animals and can't wait to have Animal Week here on the blog, since my heart melts for 4-legged creatures. But here are some pics of us in the mean time...

I always have to have my cotton candy!
Taking a break on the monorail... we got a bit exhausted.
My photographer in training is a very shy and doesn't ever like me to take his photo,
which is too bad because I think he is very handsome,
and would completely boost my ratings on the blog!

We I really wanted to rent one of these double bikes, and now regret not doing it. They are so dreamy, and would have matched my dress perfectly!

Stayed tuned for the animals this week!

  3. Hey!

    Hi there honey!

    I am doing a guest series for the month of February to celebrate Valentine's Day. I would love it if you could write a post for the series! If you have the time, I'm just asking you to tell us what love means to you. It can be a person, thing, place, idea, etc. You have lots of freedom and just need to include images. If it works for you, I'd like to try to get all posts emailed to me by January 23. Let me know!!!! Kori xoxox
