Spring Break at the Zoo

Pay attention to the title because you will never see that combination of words on this blog again!  While Mikayla was on Spring Break, Jeremy took a couple of days off so that we could have some good family fun together.   We decided a day at the zoo would be a lot of fun.  We had great weather, so it seemed like a good plan.  Now, we knew it would be busier than we were used to, but we were totally unprepared for how busy it truly would be.  When we got there, we quickly realized there was NO parking at the zoo, so we parked about a half mile (maybe more) away and then walked through Grant Park to get to the zoo.  Thankfully we had pre-purchased our tickets so we didn’t have to stand in the crazy long line to get inside the park.  After we got in, there were people EVERYWHERE.  So one would think we wouldn’t have enjoyed ourselves.  However, we had a great time.  The kids were so well-behaved and listened beautifully.  The animals were out everywhere and the kids really enjoyed seeing them.  Despite the crazy crowds, we had a really nice time together as a family.
