I am always looking for somewhere to take my kiddies for the summer. This looks like so much fun and something I would enjoy. I am not an outdoorsy (is that even a word??) person normally, but I would certainly leave my house for this. I love this Bronz zoo; I haven’t been since my son was four and he is sixteen now. This will be worth the visit. Thanks for sharing.
