We are all about travel and I am always interested in finding out what other people do when they travel with babies and small children. I thought I'd start sharing some of our adventures here too. Enjoy!
Last month we visited our families in Arizona. While we were there, we took a special day with just our parents and Ryan's sister to visit Out of Africa in Camp Verde.
I know there are other safari zoos like this out there, but this is the only one I've ever been to and I think it's just amazing.

After that you're on your own to ride shuttles or walk along the zoo and see the other animals. There are a few shows here and there too. We caught a reptile show and all took turns petting a python... pretty fun stuff!
-There is food there, but it was mostly of the fair-food variety that isn't really friendly to gluten-free people. We all packed lunches, even those who weren't gluten free, and sat out in the hatch of my mother-in-law's SUV to eat (and nurse!)
-My mom picked up a cheap umbrella stroller for us and it was a huge lifesaver. There were little shuttles to take you around if needed, but you don't get to see everything that way and there is A LOT of walking involved if you want to see it all.
-HATS AND SUNSCREEN! I ended up changing the baby into pants later in the day too because I was worried his little legs were getting burnt.
