Ever since my first child could walk we’ve had a membership to the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens. As a stay-at-home mom, the zoo has been a very important part of my life in the past few years. It has given me the opportunity to provide an amazing and diverse opportunity for exploration to my children in an affordable way.
When I found out last year that the zoo was preparing to both turn 100 years old and unveil an incredible tiger exhibit in 2014, I couldn’t wait! At each visit we’ve eagerly watched as the construction at the far end of the zoo progressed and the anniversary announcements became more prominent.
Then soon before the opening of the exhibit, Jax Mom’s Blog found out that we were invited to a media preview of the Land of the Tiger. Let’s just say that at the word of this news, my third baby (the camera) and I were extraordinarily excited about this opportunity.
I was joined by my daughter Lilla and fellow bloggers Vicky (with her children Brendan and Audrey) and Kristen (with daughter Quinn) as we explored the latest marvel that makes our already amazing zoo even more spectacular!
Happy 100th Anniversary to the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens!!!
