Those Places Thursday: Detroit Zoo

One of my favorite collages at my parent’s house is one my mom has of the Detroit Zoo over the years. Like many kids, we always loved going to the zoo. Our city had it’s own zoo but going to the Detroit Zoo was an adventure! I don’t remember any of it of course, but I love these pictures from over the years.

I love that these pictures have been taken at the same place over the years! My nephews LOVE the zoo and I’ve gone with them before too. They are great tour guides 🙂 My views on zoos are a bit different than they used to be but the Detroit Zoo is quite impressive.
