Pittsburgh Zoo

It would be $57.00 for me to take the kids to the Pittsburgh Zoo. $70.00 if Michael would like to come as well. The membership for a year is only $80.00, but the zoo is an hour from us, and I just don't see us wanting to go there as often as let's say the science museum. Well, Allison called me up and said that if you brought a pair of prescription glasses to the zoo, you could get in free. This promotion was for the whole month of April! Free is a great price to me, so I gathered up all our old glasses, got a few pairs from some neighbors, and off we went!We had a large group. It was me with my four kids, Allison with two of her kids, Danielle with two kids, and Jaime with two of her kids. Having so many little people to chase after was crazy at times, but so worth the trouble. The weather was perfect and the animals were out and active.
We heard the lion roar, saw the polar bear jump and play with a ball, walked under sharks, smelled elephants, and ate a picnic lunch.

Although exhausting for me, I am already on the lookout for discarded prescription glasses for next year!
