I love taking Olivia to the zoo! We got an annual pass, which means it doesn’t matter if we just drop in for an hour, we are still getting our money’s worth.

I enjoy seeing the animals as much as she does and I really want to bring her up to respect our wildlife – I think the zoo really helps to instill that in her.

A huge fan 🙂

I bought the annual membership and it’s totally worth it. I have been a few times in the afternoon with my son in the middle of the week. Head over after nap time and can just go for a couple of hours while it’s relatively quiet. Great way to spend an afternoon and having the membership means I don’t feel like I have to spend all day there to get the most out of the ticket price.
