Last summer when we went to the zoo before we went in the gate a man stopped us and asked if we would like to buy a membership to the zoo society. It ended up costing only $10 more( for a family membership with military discount) then to just buy tickets to get in. we bought it and enjoyed our visit to the zoo that day.
then later in the summer we went to the Aquarium not far from here and got in with our NC zoo membership. That more then paid for the cost of membership. then we also went to tour a battleship and it let us in with our zoo membership.
Last week we went to the zoo again for Z day. We were not able to go on our actual z-day because it was raining and Derek had to work all night the night before.
It was a very cold and windy day but we dressed warm and had a very fun time.
Our membership will get us into most any zoo in the US and some of Canada's.
I've been thinking maybe you would like to know how sweet my boy is.
His latest thing is learning to use scissors. He will sit at the table and cut paper for hours. but the other night I wasn't watching him close enough and he started cutting his pants. He did a very big hole in them before I stopped him.
He loves to call for Heidi but he will not say Molly. If we point at Molly and ask him who she is he says, "Heidi."
Sometimes he really needs, "dat." if I don't understand what "dat" is he will grab my hand and say, "'Mon, 'Mon," and show me what "dat" is.
He loves to sit on my "map" but it isn't very fun to share it with Heidi.
When saying, bye one must give hugs and kisses. He says bye then pokes out his lips ready for his kiss.
Sometimes I say he is left handed but Derek thinks he's right handed so we've decided he's ambi-not-dextrous since he uses his left hand for holding his fork or spoon and is very messy and he uses his right hand for throwing balls and they always go wild.
He has also shown me that boys are born liking boy things like girls are born liking girly things. He has liked the roar of our truck every time. He has always liked balls and cars and can ride trike like a pro.
He likes to sing too. He can sing, this little light of mine, I'm in the Lords army, and We will rock you.
