Reston Petting Zoo

The perfect little zoo about 15 minutes away down Route 7 is the Reston Petting Zoo. Filled with animals that you wouldn't think a tiny local petting zoo would have. Exciting animals like....



Even Kangaroos!

All these unique animals, and my kids would rather climb the wired fence. I'm learning one thing - boys will be boys. They like to monkey around.

The zoo allows you to get up close and personal with a lot of the animals. There's milk bottles to feed the lamb and goats, as well as animal feed. Not sure if it's the age, but Caelan definitely seemed much more curious and interested in seeing the animals.

Micah would rather drive the animals
in his new convertible
with Karis, his friend from church.

The park is about 30 acres, a good size zoo, for a lot of hands-on interaction with exotic animals. There's also a free tractor ride through their mini-safari which also holds ostrich, zebra, and antelope. Pony rides are extra cash. There's a picnic area by a lake, too, if you wanted to bring lunch as well. The cost is $12 for adults, $9 for ages 2 and above, and Caelan was free. For what it offers and how close it is -- it's a good deal!

This baby llama is like, "Dude, you're PAYING to see me. Act like I'm worth the money!"
