Back to Basics...focus more on the kids, with a bit of food, fashion and fun for me.
Look: We got a membership at the Philadelphia Zoo. We bought the membership with money we were sent by Chris's generous Aunt Karen and Uncle Bob for Birthdays and holidays. Seemed like a great idea to put it towards something we could enjoy all year. So far we've used it a bunch and the kids have enjoyed every moment.
Learn: Of course we've showed them tons of photos, books and videos of animals, but until you see one in person it just isn't the same. Each new animal we'd come upon they would clammer asking what animal it was. Some of the favorites were of course the polar bear, the giraffes and the cat exhibit.
Love: This is a special thing, but because it's a membership it's something we can do throughout the year. Love that we live near a big zoo and big city like Philadelphia...so much to show the kids.
