I kept telling people that the 60+ degree temperature and sunny skies of last week was premature. This weekend saw a return to more seasonal weather. Saturday, I tagged along to the zoo. Since I had to be back for mass at 6, I drove myself. I did fine until I exited the turnpike and took the wrong branch off. Fortunately, my mistake was remedied quickly as all I needed to do was turn around and head back.
Upon paying for admission, I decided to get a membership to the place since for some reason, I ave been quite a bit of zooing lately. Not that that is a bad thing… as the slogan goes “I Love My ZOO!” and not a bad deal either. Discount prices to many zoos throughout the country plus I can bring a friend free each time. Plus, I got to help a complete stranger by allowing him to get in on my pass.
Because the weather was cold and rainy, our band spent most of the few hours in the indoor exhibits. The little ones spent a large part of it at the indoor play area. They even took part in an activity in which they made toys for the birds! The little one occupied himself with chalk and a beehive. My little buddy!
After the zoo, we checked out Crazy Prices! A very cool store with CRAZY Prices! I picked up a fleece OSU blanket for $5 which usually runs upwards of $30. Will come in very handy later tonight! I looked at some hooded sweatshirts that were just as reasonable… BUT… wouldn’t ya know… the largest they had was a Medium. I’m sure I’ll be back!
After returning and singing at mass, a friend and I closed the evening by watching Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. And this leads me to wish everyone a Happy Pi Day. If you don’t get the connection, watch the very fun film! We won’t get into the hour loss. Just happy that is behind us and can now catch up on a bit on the rest! What a Super Saturday!

Glad we all had a good time, despite the horrid weather. Is that the first time you’d seen the Night at the Museum sequel? We enjoyed it a lot – it’s hilarious!
Nope… not the first. But just as good the second or third! 😉
I have yet to see it, so please give warning before you talk about it! 🙂
I trust I will be the friend on your pass soon, L. 😉
@derek – is this talk of a visit soon?!?
Well, it *has* been awhile- perhaps at the end of the month.
@derek -that would be too awesome! Just let us know when so that Chris switch around his work schedule if it’s during the week. The girls are on spring break March 29-April 3, and we have the town’s Easter Egg hunt on the 27th, but you could join us for that; it’s a lot of fun! Whatever you decide, we will be here!!
Nothing to apologize about J- you haven’t really said anything yet about it. I already knew about the existence of Pi Day, even if I didn’t realize the significance of yesterday’s date. 🙂
@Taylhis- due to my work schedule I would most likely be coming on a weekend rather than a weekday. I’ll let you know.
