I took off last Friday so that we could get out and enjoy the warmer weather. We decided to get annual zoo passes as we haven't been there in over two years. Also, MommaLlama ends up just five minutes away from the zoo when they go for Bubba's allergy shot every other week, so there will be ample opportunity to use them.
