This summer we bought a season pass to the zoo. Unfortunately for us, it was too hot this summer to take advantage of our purchase. So when we saw the forecast for this weekend, we decided it would be a perfect day to go to the zoo.
Delaney was uber-excited! So imagine her devastation when we pulled into the parking lot to find that the zoo was CLOSED!! It’s open 364 days a year and closes one day to prepare for their big fancy fundraiser. And that’s the day we choose. Really??? It felt like we were part of a Chevy Chase movie.
Since we had a sitter for Nate for the day, we had a quick brainstorming session and finally settled on going to a nearby park. Initially, Delaney was not a willing participant. Until she actually saw the park and all its awesomeness.
It may not have been the zoo, but the day wasn’t a total failure. And who knows. Maybe we’ll make it to the zoo next weekend.
