We decided that if we would drive eight hours to Cincinnati to go to the zoo, we might as well drive and hour and a half to the NC Zoo. The weather was in the eighties and quite sunny. We walked over five miles and were all pretty pooped by the end, but a great trip and we joined the zoo so we plan to go again soon. Henry loved it - especially the new playground. My favorite part was the RJ Reynolds Aviary (always get a charge out of the irony there). Enjoy the pics - and go to the Zoo!
