Mikes parents recently got us zoo passes for our whole family for a year. (Thanks for our early Christmas present!) We've loved it! We've already been twice and can't wait to just keep going and going and going.
I love passes. They make you feel like you can spend as long (or as short) as you want and it's not a waste of money. So if the kids are too crazy we can leave... instead of "You know what?! We spent a lot of money to come here so we're going to stay 3 more hours and get our money's worth even though you're having a melt-down now!" Know what I mean?
So I'm excited. It's wonderful to just come and look at a section or wander around and let the kids be kids. And have time to just be. And look at giraffes. And fall in love with prairie dogs. And enjoy the elephants. Etc. You get the point. Now, what most of you really want... the pictures.
