what to do with all of these Zoo pictures?

Last week, I took Caroline and a friend to the Nashville Zoo.
Caroline and her friend both took their camera and it was so cute to see them snapping away.
This is a rare sight in our family because Caroline knows I will always be taking pics so she doesn't normally bother.
It was fun to see her enjoying photography.

Now here's my quandary. This is like the 5th or 6th set of really great Zoo photos I've gotten in the last few years.
What to do with them all?

Should I do an 8x8 or 6x6 mini called "At the Zoo" and just put them all in together?
I've seen someone do something like this and she mixed the pics of the animals all together, years mixed in with other years.

What do you think? I always love the pics I get there! We had a membership that is over next week.
I doubt I'll get one again for awhile so now's the time to do something with my pictures.

We had a great time! There's a new dinosaur exhibit there too. Kinda hokey but fun.

So have you scrapped Zoo pics or some other type of pics of a place you go over and over?
If so, how?
One problem is that I probably have 6 trips worth and each time, I got like 50 great shots!!!

Thanks for your help! Can't wait to hear your ideas!

I love that the girls are taking pictures of the same things!! Double pics...LoL!!! Great shots! Have fun scrapping them! These kind of pics are kinda like Christmas...we do it over and over every year, I just incorporate them into the family album every year.

I've done separate zoo pages over the years. On my latest page, I used an envelope that houses my journaling, but it could easily be adapted to hold multiple photos. Here's a link: How about doing a collage and doing a 2-pager? Just a couple of ideas. :)

Those are some great pictures! I like the idea of doing the mini book :)

I have a whole scrapbook dedicated to just zoo trips, but they're different zoos or special events at the same zoo. I try to keep it different to keep things interesting. I think I would do a mini album of JUST this particular visit. You got a lot of cute photos of your daughter and her friend and so maybe make a mini-album for each of them that contain the photos of them together and some of the pictures you took.

As for your other photos...if you have a bunch of several different animals maybe do sort of a collage of each animal from the different visits. When you've gone to the same place multiple times it can be difficult to scrapbook it each time.

Make sure you share with us what you decide to do!

Looking at the photos you posted, I see the theme of FRIENDS instead of the Zoo.
That's what sets this trip apart from all your other zoo photos.
