Travel Thursday: Naples Zoo

In March 2012, we went to Naples, Florida for my brother-in-law's wedding. Even though I was pregnant with Cecily and ridiculously sick at the time, we decided to make a vacation about it. One of the places we visited while there was the Naples Zoo.


It was fairly small, but we got half price admission through our zoo pass to our local zoo as a reciprocal member (which, if you are members of a zoo and don't take advantage of that, you really should!). One of my favorite parts about it was that you could take a boat ride through the lagoon to see all the monkeys that live on islands. 


Ewan was 14 months at the time and of course he chose the boat ride to be super fussy and we were "those people" on the ride. Still cool though!

This was not long after he began walking and he just wanted to go go go and not sit at all. Once we got off the boat, we let him do just that and were able to get this great photo of him. It's currently on our photo wall in the family room.

  2. Kudos to you for going while pregnant and sick! (I was a miserable pregnant woman and basically wanted to sit in the dark all day.) I love that picture of Ewan--it definitely is a keeper!

  3. There's actually a funny story behind me being pregnant and in Florida...every time we've planned a trip down there, I find out I'm pregnant. This time I not only had 24/7 sickness but some stomach virus too - it was awful! Anyways though, the joke is that if we want another baby all we have to do is plan a trip to Florida and we know I'll get pregnant again LOL
