We took a trip to the Audubon Zoo today with our almost-sort-of-but-not-really "free" tickets. Many months ago we purchased a special 4 ticket package for $25. Regular cost is $50, so this was a deal. Well... we went to the zoo not long after. It says on the ticket to hand it to the ticket taker, and when we did.... he glanced at one ticket and handed it back to us and waved us through. So... we kept the tickets and (ssshhhhh!) used them again today. Our luck ran out though because this time we had to turn them in for regular tickets at the window. Shucks!

My Dad came with us and it was a great day. The weather couldn't have been perfect. Valerie and Veronica had a GREAT time. Val was so excited that my Dad was coming that she made me call him at 7:30am to make sure! She adores him so much and is always so happy to see him. Roni is getting to be the same way - shrieking 'POPPI!' when she sees him. Val was the same way with my mom, and I hope she holds on to those memories.


  1. Did they all ask for me?

    I couldn't resist! HAHAHAHA

  2. I love that zoo......can't wait to take my girls there....
