we had a groupon discount too - that made admission half price - even more reason to go!
we had also gone the year before, but ben was still pretty little and not quite as excited about it.
this year he thoroughly enjoyed it!
because of the size (not too big) and nice layout (easily walked or maneuvered with a stroller) it is great for little people (and their parents).
there are also plenty of animal exhibits that allow you to feed or interact with the animals.
feeding the giraffes was probably ben's favorite.
but he really enjoyed feeding the fish too!
family time, great weather and a nice picnic lunch = a wonderful day!
i hope we can make it back again when the weather cools down.
