Happy Saturday! What a beautiful day again today! We are blessed with gorgeous weather this weekend and we chose to take advantage of it by spending the day at the zoo. 🙂 This was my beloved girls birthday wish and I was very glad that we could make it happen. After a quick breakfast of banana bread and throwing some sandwiches in a couple of totes we proceeded to enjoy seeing and learning about all the amazing creatures of the earth.
Our activity did have its frugal side. While the zoo tickets are a little pricey, by the time we all get in the door we have almost paid for a membership. So we just bought the membership instead and now we can all go anytime we like! Not frugal in the initial outset but now we can take field trips several times throughout the year and not feel guilty about it. Also, I knew we would be having a nice big dinner and cake later so I packed simple sandwiches, pretzels and water for lunch and it worked perfectly. We were filled enough but sufficiently hungry to enjoy the fabulous food made by Mr. Hubby later. Everyone said they had a great time and best of all – the birthday girl feels loved and celebrated.
Here’s some evidence of the enjoyment:
Hope you all have a great weekend!
Peace and health,
