The Zoo and Zoo lights

Papa Jack and Grandma Donna once again got our family a zoo pass, good for the whole year, for Christmas. We LOVE this gift. We only have to go twice a year for it to pay for itself and we go at least 6-8 times a year. The kids love going to the zoo, it has so much to offer and is a great outing and field trip! And right now there is a new Koala exhibit that we have not seen yet.

We had not been to zoo lights yet so we were going to make a day of it. We went to the zoo in the early afternoon, we brought out lunch with and stayed till the zoo closed at 4:00. It would then re-open at 6:00 for zoo lights. So while it was closed we ran some errands and went to Del Taco for dinner. (You can't beat .39 cent tacos for this crew)

We packed our warm jackets and hats for the evening and the weather was beautiful, chilly but not too cold.

Right now till the end of January they have these great "Polar Slides" The kids loved it. There is an extra cost so they each got to try it just once, but oh so much fun!

Thank you Papa and Grandma! We are very excited to enjoy the zoo for another year!
