Last week, before the turned more fall-like, we enjoyed a field trip to the local zoo with some friends. Our friends had a zoo membership pass and the attendant allowed all of us to get in for free with their pass.
We try to visit the zoo annually, but hadn't been there yet this year. So it was time for a visit. This zoo is a good size for us (especially for me, walking it in my 3rd trimester of pregnancy). It doesn't have everything a big zoo has, but it has enough - lions, tigers, zebras, alligators, monkeys, kangaroos, snakes.
After the zoo, we walked to a nearby playground. This is so fun that it rivals the fun of the zoo for my kids.
Yeah for local, free, fun and educational field trips!
