I believe that the purchase of our membership at the zoo is the best thing we buy every year for our family. It is so nice to be able to just go walking around looking at all the animals. Darius is so excited this summer about the zoo. His favorite "zoo sister" Jelissa takes him several times a month. I enjoy the time I get to go and watch his face light up. He loves to make animal sound all the time so when he gets to see the animals up close it just tickles him. I love to watch his face light up when he feeds the giraffes. Our greatest memories will always and forever be when Darius grabbed the giraffes lips and pulled them to him. I almost died. It was the funniest thing ever.
I never thought I would be the kind of mother that enjoyed the zoo. The girls and I went maybe once a year when they were growing up. Now I go once a month all year long, and sometimes more. It is interesting to see what a different mother I am to the little kids. I have so much more patience, I just wish I had the energy I did with the girls. You win some you loss some. I'm still learning balance.
