We love the Pittsburgh Zoo and we love Chick-fil-A. So when you put the two together, a whole lot of fun occurs!
I recently shared the news that I was a member of the Chick-fil-A of Pittsburgh Mom Ambassador Panel. One of the perks of being a Chick-fil-A blogger is being able to attend all the fun events!
On Thursday, the kids and I spent a wonderful evening at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium for Family Night at the Zoo with Chick-fil-A!
The fun began the moment we arrived!
We filled out our name tags, grabbed some hats, and headed out on our adventure!
After seeing the tigers, we were treated to some delicious Chick-fil-A food. My kids were starving after school, so they were so excited to find out they would be eating a Chick-fil-A dinner! They promptly sat down on the path and devoured their Grilled Chicken Subs and macaroni and cheese! I have no photo evidence of this, thanks to trying to feed myself and 4 kids. I swear, the kids were done eating before I even had the chance to take a bite!
After we ate, we moved on to see some more animals. The kids got to pet a chinchilla and a guinea pig, and they saw an owl up close. Lexie LOVES owls, so she was thrilled!
Lily was most excited about seeing the flamingos. Upon hearing that the flamingos were Lily's favorite animal, a very sweet zookeeper, who was herding up the flamingos, brought a flamingo feather over to Lily. Lily couldn't believe she was able to take it home. It definitely made her night!
It was neat to see all the animals around dinner time. They were all so much more active than they are during the typical zoo hours! We got to see quite a few up close!
After seeing the animals, we stopped for another food break. This time, it was for chips and watermelon! (Just for the record, the Chick-fil-A waffle potato chips are REALLY good!)
We go to the zoo often, but Family Night at the Zoo was different. Chick-fil-A did such a great job at making it special evening for everyone! It wasn't crowded, it felt safe, it was very family-friendly, and the kids had a great time!
It got dark and chilly, but the fun didn't end there. We headed up to the pavilion for ice cream and face painting!
The evening ended with a really fun dance party! The DJ played some great songs, and the kids were going crazy. Let's just say that Liam did not want to leave the dance floor!
My family had so much fun at the Pittsburgh Zoo with Chick-fil-A!
Before we knew it the night came to an end. We exchanged hugs with some new friends, then headed home with full bellies, smiles on our faces, and happy memories!
Thanks for the wonderful night, Chick-fil-A and Pittsburgh Zoo!
