Akron Zoo + Groupon = Fun!

It just so happened that about a month ago Groupon's deal of the day was for half price family membership to the Akron Zoo. I had some Groupon bucks in reserve and was able to score our family pass for ONLY $14!

Sooo, with a high temperature of 69ยบ this past Friday, my daughter and I headed to the Akron Zoo. We've been visiting this particular zoo since she was born.

It's the perfect size for small kids. There are several playgrounds, a great picnic area, and a new carousel. They are also installing a new "Farmland" set to open this spring. They used to have a farm area where kids could pet sheep and goats, but this looks a lot better and more kid friendly. My daughter, Viv, was super excited about it {but she gets excited about anything to do with animals}.

Every year I take a picture of her on her favorite frog statue near the gardens. And every year I'm amazed how much she's grown. This year was no exception.


We're looking forward to a fun-filled summer of inexpensive fun at the zoo.

Well, that is, if we can make it through the gift shop without buying something every time...
