My mom and I took Little Ripples to the zoo this morning. I have a membership so we didn't have to pay to park or for admission. I packed a small back pack with 2 bananas, a juice box, a can of pop and a granola bar so we didn't have to buy any snacks.
Our local zoo is pretty small and they have a section of it closed off for construction of some new exhibits so it only took 1 1/2 hours to go through it.
My only financial fail was that I forgot that we had bought a discounted prepaid card to use for the carousel, train rides and crackers for goat feeding. I left the card in Mr. Ripples wallet so I ended up spending $5 so Little Ripples could still do all those things.
Now Mr. Ripples and Little Ripples went to a family birthday party. Baby Ripples is sick so I'm hanging out at home with her.
