Today I have a guest post up over at KWI Word Warriors.
I also just want to give a little lip service to the zoo. And by that, I mean all zoos. The best purchase we made in the last year was a Friends of the Zoo membership. It gives us free entrance to our zoo and several others, discounted entrance into most other zoos, as well as other discounts in gift shops and zoo cafes, etc. For the Topeka Zoo, it’s a year-long family membership for around $50. Other zoos can be more expensive, but usually it’s because they’re bigger, nicer zoos. It is always worth the money to be able to wake up in the morning, look out the window and say “Hey, it’s gorgeous out. Let’s go to the zoo.” If you’ve got kids or you like animals, you can’t go wrong with a membership to your local zoo.
