I am a mother to two awesome kids, and have been married to my favorite hubby (okay, my only hubby, but still my favorite!) since October 1999. Our favorite thing to do is get out of the house and find adventures! I am the founder and creator of Enjoy Utah!, a site dedicated to helping families get out of the house and see all that Utah has to offer! I contribute as a blog writer for the Salt Lake Visitors Bureau, and also write CityGuides for SheKnows.com.. I am excited to be a part of Today's Mama! I co-own a DJ Business with my hubby, and also do the online marketing and manage the blog and social media for Gines Auto Service.

Lego Animals at the Zoo


The animals have arrived at Hogle Zoo!…….LEGO animals, that is!

Now through September, you can see LEGO pieces formed into the shape of animals, and scattered around various locations at the Hogle Zoo.

polar bearSean Kenny is the sculpture of the “Creatures of Habitat: A Gazillion-Piece Animal Adventure” exhibit. He was the first person in the world to be named a LEGO Certified Professional by the LEGO Group in 2005. The polar bear is the largest sculpture he has ever created! It took him over 1,100 hours to complete utilizing 95,000 LEGO bricks.

The LEGO animals are sculpted after many different animals from around the world, including the Arctic, Peru, North America, Guam, Ecuador, Borneo, Congo and Brazil.

Make sure to step inside the LEGO mosaic outside of the Great Ape building to take a photo and see how you would look as a LEGO gorilla or orangutan.

Join the Block Party!

Most days in the main plaza, try your hand at creating your own LEGO creation. This area is included with your zoo admission.

Remember, the Hogle Zoo is included with your Connect Pass, so make sure to pick one up before you go if you don’t already have one!

Visit the Hogle Zoo website for hours, admission, and more information.
