We're not quite out of boxes yet, but we got our zoo pass and we're exploring our new home town. The zoo was great although it was a super hot day and even Casey and I were contemplating sneaking into the water park next door. The kids were amazing, of course they asked for all the stuff that isn't included in your membership (face painting, pony rides, giant sodas), but after being told "That cost extra" they were super understanding and didn't whine or ask again. I loved it and rewarded them with frostys on the way home. It was a great day to be a member of the Elmer family!
The Polar Bears were my favorite. They have an underwater viewing area (where it is much cooler than it is outside) and it was so fun to sit and watch them chase fish and swim around. I could have stayed there all day.
The zoo is divided up by regions and we only got through one region, so we're looking forward to our next trip (our pass includes two guest, any takers?).
