Emmi has begged to go to the zoo---off and on for almost 2 years. Terrible parents, I know. We've just been paying off adoptions, or saving for adoptions, for forever (and still are).
We finally bit the bullet, and went. For our family to get in, it costs over $50. But a season pass is $99. So we got a pass, and plan to go once a month. Asavings of $500 or more-yipee!!!!The petting zoo part was closed (due to hot weather and fewer visitors in the heat). SO --leave it to this mama to trek down a worker and convince him to get a goat out for Waid to see and touch. He was happy to, and I suggested to them that they should have a special "handicapped child" day, and get lots of animals out of the cages for them=).
