This past Saturday, Andy and I decided at the last minute to head to the zoo.
Hogle Zoo just opened their new section called the African Savannah this Spring and we have been wanting to go check it out.
We started the day out with a look at the exhibits that were previously there.
Andy just LOVES the orangutans, and this one was giving us a show for a minute!
And the elephants are always fun!
Then it was time to head over the the African Savannah section. It was really nice! Some of the animals haven't really gotten used to all the open space yet, so they weren't all out and about together.
I really liked this new statue they added:
And of course we had to end our day with a ride on the train. They made the route a little bit longer and it winds around the Savannah now.

It was a great day at the zoo! It was a bit crowded, but the say was really nice for being outside.
I am so glad that we have such a great zoo close by!
