Team Smiley Celebrates The 115th Anniversary Of The Pittsburgh Zoo

Hello friends! It’s Smiley here, to tell you all about my wonderful trip to the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium! I was there with my crew to celebrate the zoo’s 115th anniversary on Saturday June 15th. What a great day to be at the zoo—we got to see all kinds of animals! I even got to go into the petting zoo to see the goats. But my favorite animals to see were definitely the sea lions.

I made lots of friends, too. Team Smiley was there to hand out cookies to all the people who passed by our tent. Some of them even won really cool prizes playing Smiley Plinko! Other kids played Smiley cornhole or hula hooped.

I loved walking between the reptile house and the sea lion window. I got to meet a lot of the zoo keepers who work with all the animals. I found out that even Molly the camel loves Smiley Cookies! I tried posing for a picture with her but she wouldn’t look, so instead I took a picture with one of my new friends!

I love the zoo so much, I was sad to leave. But there’s good news! My team and I get to come back very soon! Mark your calendars, because Eat’n Park Family Week at the Zoo starts June 29th. I hope to see you there!
