A-maze-ing Day at Beardsley Zoo

If you haven’t been to the Connecticut Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport, it’s worth checking out. True, it’s nothing like the Bronx Zoo, but there IS a carousel and there are enough exhibits that families can make a half-day out of it. Membership is only $80 for a family and parking is FREE! We became members before we actually moved to CT. They also have neat events, like the Halloween and Chinese New Year parades. Now they have a life-sized Barnyard Maze open everyday and the country fair on weekdays.

Since we missed the Barnum street parade, we went directly to the zoo. It was a really gorgeous day! Little Pie is finally old enough to point to animals and appreciate them. Here are some of our favorites:

Prairie dog gathering of the minds

Mane wolf strutting


Turtles that Mads saw way before I did
