I totally forgot to blog about this!!!! So at the end of summer, Daniel and I usually go on a weekend getaway, like to Niagara Falls or Montreal!

This year, we were thinking of going to Prince Edward County or Tobermory, but had no luck with finding an Airbnb or hotel for the dates that we wanted.

We still wanted to do something exciting during the Labour Day weekend though. As I was looking through our "❤️ LIST OF DATE IDEAS ❤️" on my phone, I realized that we still haven't checked out the zoo!!!

We've been meaning to go here all summer, but had to postpone it many times due to the weather or a scheduling conflict. I was so excited when we finally found a day that worked for the both of us!!!

We got really lucky and received complimentary admission tickets from the place we used to work at! This was also the place where we met each other for the first time!!! 😄

I visited the zoo four years ago with my best friend, Joy! Daniel couldn't recall if he has ever been, but I feel like he hasn't. He was literally in awe at everything he saw! So cute! 😄

It's always so much fun checking out tourist attractions with him because he gets so excited with his camera. 😄

My mom is totally convinced that we're meant for each other because we're both photo fanatics and a kid at heart. But honestly, the 12 year old me would've never thought she would meet a boy who loves taking photos, enjoys making tents in the bedroom and knows the words to High School Musical songs!!!!! ❤️😄

I came across this machine that converted nickels into souvenir coins! Since I got one from Casa Loma, I knew I had to get one here! Daniel judged me for getting one in the past, and judged me again for getting one here. GRRR!! 😢 I can't be the only one that thinks it's so cool looking?!?!

As we made our way around the zoo, we came across more machines that offered souvenir coins with different animals!!! Like are you kidding me.. I could've gotten something else besides pandas!!! Unfortunately, I had no more nickels to spare. But you already knowwww I would've been all up on that! 😄

Daniel shared a photo of the snake exhibit on his Snapchat story and one of his friends is convinced that they're fake. He took a similar photo a few years ago and they were in the exact same spot!! 😂

Since I've been to the zoo before, I had a mental list of which animals I wanted to see again! Below are a few of my favourites!!!

The panda exhibit was poppin'!!! It was so crowded that I couldn't even get close to the window. I just stuck my camera up in the air, clicked the button several times and prayed that I got something good out of it. 😂

I finally got a chance to see them up close when I viewed them from a fence on the side. It really did look like someone was wearing a panda costume because it didn't feel real witnessing them in action!

These peacocks were running around the zoo freely and kids were going crazy and chasing after them. Meanwhile, I was so scared to even go up this close for a photo. 😂

We totally underestimated how long it would take us to explore the whole place. We weren't able to see everything, but that's okay!!!

That only means we gotta come back another time together!!!!!! 😀
