Today was a great day! My Mother's helper and I took the boys to the zoo today.
We got there when they opened at 9am. It is a hours drive (with good traffic). WE had almost made it through all of the exhibits when the rain started. We rushed (ran like maniacs......me with a double stroller pushing and running) to the pavilion (gazebo picnic area). Thankfully I had parked right in front of it. WE had our picnic lunch, changed the boys and headed on our way.
The good thing is that we did not loose our $38. that would be because we bought a season pass. For a family of 2 parents and up to for children you get it for $99. unlimited admission for a year and up to 15 nights of Zoolight Safari (the Christmas light extravaganza). One more trip will have our pass paid for and we've only had it for a month.
I thought that was great savings.
