Trip to the Pet Store

We had so much fun last weekend. We went to the neighborhood pet stores. My 5 year old loves looking at animals. His favorite is the fish.  We have two stores very close to us so we visited both of them. I’ve never seen Isaac so excited to go to a store. He was so happy. He was talking a mile a minute about the animals and running wild to each one.

On our first stop we got to see birds, cats, ferrets, hamsters, rats, fish, lizards, snakes and turtles. The ferrets were so cute sleeping and snuggling together. Fish are so interesting to watch. We got to see so many pretty tropical fish and fresh water fish too.

Our second stop was even more exciting we got to pet a couple of dogs that came to visit the pet store. We also saw fish, hermit crabs, shrimp, lizards and birds.

I only wish I would have taken more pictures. Next time I will know better.  

This is an inexpensive way to see animals and a chance for your child to see new animals and learn about them too. The staff at the pet store is always really helpful. Children can count fish, learn colors and read the names of the animals. 

We had so much fun going to the pet stores and on the way home my son said he had a fun day.
