After we kicked off Fall Break with a camping trip to DeSoto State Park and Little River Canyon National Preserve, I headed to my hometown of Collierville, TN (Memphis suburb) with the 3 kids to visit my parents for a few days. The Fall Break adventures continued there when we visited the Memphis Zoo, which is as good as any zoo I have been to outside of St. Louis. Here are some pictures from our time at the Memphis Zoo.
The Memphis Zoo was decorated for Halloween.
One of the 1st things we did was feed the giraffes! Will thought the giraffe’s giant tongue was hilarious.

The panda bear is one of the laziest animals ever. It just lays there looking almost dead.
