The Zoo!

We decided to buy a zoo membership this year. It was just a smart thing to do – we knew we would go there pretty often this year and since it is $6/adult to get in why not buy a yearlong membership for the whole family that only costs $50?? We have already gone twice (we've had it for 2 weeks) so we've only got 2 more visits to go before the membership is "paid" for. The other great thing about the zoo membership – it's good at over 180 other zoos across the U.S. Logan has really enjoyed going to the zoo so far, he especially loves riding on the train. Right now is such a fun time to go too since most of the animals have had babies. When we went the first time a baby reindeer had been born the day before and there was a baby goat whose umbilical cord stump was still attached. (OK, that was a little gross but it just shows how young it was!) I'm so happy we bought one since now we don't feel the need to walk the entire zoo every time just to get our money's worth!

*No, I'm not employed with the zoo. I just think it's a great way to spend a couple of hours and help your kids learn more about animals. And most zoos make their money from donations and paid admission so it's a way to help ensure that they will be around for awhile J

I love the zoos, too. When we lived in Maryland, we'd go down to the National Zoo pretty frequently, and just wander the exhibits. Instead of going AFTER the babies were born, we went during mating season once, and were treated to all kinds of shows, including mating half-ton tortoises. The boys were like, "WHAT are they doing?!"

I read about your microwave plate find. Ours cracked during our move to WA four years ago, and we'll still using it. Sad, huh?

I hope you're all doing well and settling in nicely. Take care!

The zoo is great for the little ones! I'm glad you are able to go so often. Fun! Fun! and MORE Fun! Plus, with the membership, you don't feel like you've wasted your money if you get there and only stay an hour.
