Farewell to the Lazy days of Summer

As we all know Labor Day is the symbolic end of summer which meant that today was basically our last chance to do something fun as a family. My better half had to work today so before the routines and formality of Autumn set in, the kids and I decided to go to the Cape May Zoo.  

Since school resumes tomorrow we wanted to go somewhere where it's safe to break out the pocketbook, and just relax. The zoo in Cape May is FREE! It has a fairly good amount of animals and everyone seemed to be friendly.  

There is something so relaxing about walking around the zoo to pause, and overlook at the animals who were at a distance. 

We saw a camel...
A beautiful flamingo showing off its flexibility...
And zebras walking in unison...
Noah had a lot of fun watching and 'oinking' with the pigs...
He and Chelsea both enjoyed feeding the goats...
 He was fearless!
and they enjoyed a little train ride throughout the zoo...
Unfortunately it's time to go home...Noah became weary.
I really didn't want this day to end. There are days when I want summer to be over because I look forward to fall and days when I don't want it to be over because reality begins which means the girls have to go back to school. I've really enjoyed our summer as a family, but know that autumn joys are just ahead!

*How did you spend Labor day weekend?
