For Christmas, our landlord buys us a zoo pass. It is the best thing ever! Our zoo has a lot of walking between inside exhibits, so it's not the most fun to go in the winter but yesterday it warmed up a bit and was a perfect day to go to the zoo. I wish I could say it was my idea, but I was invited by one of the other wives to meet up there.
I love how close we live to the zoo. It is only a 15 minute drive from our house, and since we have a zoo pass it isn't a big deal if we only stay for an hour and then take off. I am anxiously awaiting warmer weather so we can go a couple times a week. Lacey loves looking at all the animals, and she knows that sound that a lot of them make. It is so fun to see her connect the dots as she learns new things.
Every time she saw an animal she would lean towards them and say "kiss." I don't know what it is with her and kissing, but we might have a problem when she starts dating, haha.
