The Minnesota Zoo ~ A Give Away!

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

There's something about dolphins that I find just...
magical~

We are pretty lucky to be able to see these magical creatures right in our own backyard! 
The dolphin show at the Minnesota Zoo is one thing that never ever gets old for me. 
 I am constantly in awe of these animals ~



We love going to the Minnesota Zoo for a few hours here & there. 
It's a great place to for our family to go & burn off some energy by walking the trails & playing on their awesome play structures & splash pad...

Now THAT is a Minnesota Mosquito!


The newest exhibit to hit the Minnesota Zoo is the penguins!
Who doesn't love a cute little penguin!

And wow, is their Do the Waddle campaign ever catchy!


Volunteers are busy outside the exhibit teaching the kids (and adults!!) penguin facts,
complete with real penguin feathers to touch & hold!





If you look closely, you'll see a penguin swimming behind our girl...
(Our girl, who insists on dressing herself...



From the dolphins to the sharks to the penguins...
To the barn, the bears and the birds...

This is a great place to hang out for a few hours...

And thanks to some promo items sent to my family from the fine folks at the Minnesota Zoo for the grand opening of the new Penguin Exhibit -

I am giving TWO lucky readers, TWO ZOO PASSES EACH!

These passes expires March 31st, 2012 - so there is plenty of time to use them...
(We have an annual zoo membership so I am sharing these passes with you guys!)

How do you win?

Simple.

Leave a comment telling me your favorite animal.
 Leave a comment saying so & be entered a 2nd time!

Two lucky winners will be selected via Random.Org on Thursday, September 9th!



*** My family was sent a media kit with various items promoting the new penguin exhibit at the zoo, which included 4 admission passes to the zoo.  We paid for an annual membership & enjoy visiting the zoo, therefore, the passes we are choosing to give away. ***

My favorite is the polar bear but I love all the bears at the zoo. Julia loves everything about the zoo, including their little bee themed play area. So we'd looooove to win and have a family trip there!

Buck said...

We love the Bears, both inside and outside Bears. Boo would sit and watch them all day, and I just love how strong they are, even the small ones.

I am entering for Becky, assuming that's permitted. My favorite animal is the OTTERS! I heart them so much!

Mommy Lisa said...

We have an annual membership too - So I don't need to win. We are going tomorrow to the splash area with friends and to watch the penguins play again.

Monkeys, monkeys, monkeys. We call our kids the monkeys and the 2 year old when asked if he was still a baby he said, "I not a baby, I a monkey"!

I'm a frog lover myself. Hubby and my first date was to the frog exhibit at the MN zoo (13 years ago!).

My all around favorite are pandas! I actually went the San Diego zoo to see them once and they were pulled off exhibit the day I was there.
I'd really like to see the penguins at the MN zoo; the penguins at Como never seem to move much or get in the water and swim (my smallest says it's because they're 'old' penguins. I don't know the truth of that statement though ; )
