Yes I’m here to talk about going to the Zoo again. We love going to the zoo. It’s a good way to spend a few hours as a family doing something outside in a fun and controlled environment. We go so often that we know what animals we like to see and the ones that we don’t really care for. Which is to say we know our way around really well and hit the best spots most often.
Last April we bought a year pass to the Zoo in Fresno and lucky it worked in Boise too. I knew buying the pass would save us money, and enable us to go to the zoo on a whim because it wouldn’t cost us more then a few dollars. I had no idea just how often we would end up at the zoo or how much money we would save. Our pass expired at the end of last month so I counted up our zoo trips and was astonished to find out that we visited the zoo 18 times. 18 times! In 12 months. It would have cost us over $250 to visit the zoo that many times, and that’s just admission. We paid $55 for the pass to the Fresno zoo. I’d say it was well worth it. We have already bought our pass for this year of course.
Since I’m already talking about the zoo I might as well share my favorite pictures from our trip this weekend.
I have no idea if the zoo would tell us to stop it or not, but Lil loves to feed popcorn to the geese outside the zoo entrance (there’s a big park). I popped a little popcorn before we left the house and Lil tossed it at the geese with great pleasure.
We have a tradition of sharing a soft serve ice cream cone at the zoo and this time while we were ordering they had delicious brownies next to the cash register so we bought one.
My little birdy.
While looking up how many times we went to the zoo I noticed that the number of pictures I took each time grew smaller and smaller. I don’t think I’ve taken our real camera to the zoo in the last half dozen trips, I just use my phone and hope that I get the best pictures possible.
