Tillamook Loaf Love Tour at the Phoenix Zoo

Two weeks ago we were invited by Tillamook to attend their Loaf Love Tour at the Phoenix Zoo.  My family and my mom all attended. We were thrilled to be invited to participate, and I was also excited to get to see other local bloggers (and meet a few whom I’ve been chatting with for quite some time, like Nicolle from Babee Love)!  And while I got lots of pictures of us at the zoo, I didn’t get many of us during the event, or ANY with other bloggers!! I did, however, get a few with my blogging BFF Nancy (Arizona Mama)!

As part of the event, Tillamook had a taco making contest.  There were 3 winners: Best Taco, Most Creative, and Best Teamwork.  We got Most Creative, earning us a free 2lb block of Tillamook cheese, a Tillamook cookbook, a t-shirt and a mini Tillamook bus toy.

I have to give Gary the credit for the win, however. His creative mind shaped the side of rice like a wedge of cheese.

My kids LOVED Loafy…

…and getting their faces painted!

And of course, we had a blast at the zoo the rest of the day!
