Summer Activities: The Zoo

We are blessed with a fantastic zoo in our town. My girls have really just
 now begun to show interest in animals, so it has been a fun adventure for us this summer.
We purchased a family season pass, which lasts for one year, because it allows us to go as often as we’d like. It pays for itself in two visits, so it’s a great value. It also gives us discounts on the homeschool science lessons and art lessons that the zoo offers.
In addition to our family pass, we purchased the guest pass for an extra $20, which allows us to bring one friend free of charge each time we go. Things are always better when shared with a friend, so we have gotten our money’s worth out of the guest pass. Our zoo has a great playground that is built to loosely resemble a gorilla habitat. My monkeys love to climb the rocks and slide down the rock slide. They have this rope-enclosed swinging bridge that even my little one can handle.
Yesterday our friend let us know about the fossil digging spot. We had never seen it before. The girls took a break from the walking to dig in the sand for fossils. 
Patterson was fascinate by the river otters.
Our zoo has a fun splash pad for the kiddos to cool off. We always take our swimsuits and jump in as soon as we get hot. It was closed for maintenance yesterday, so we had to make our own water fun at home.
Check out those thighs!
