DreamNight at the zoo

What a wonderful thing the hospitals and the zoo does for kids with chronic illness/disabilities and their families. It gives the child and their family the opportunity to experience the zoo and all it has to offer, without the big crowds that would normally be there. We could never just go to the zoo for that reason. We took the kids to this invitation only event on Friday evening...the kids had so much fun.

They got to pet animals...Hold extremely large bugs that I get chills at just thinking about it...See the dinosaurs (very neat might I add)...We even had a chance to just relax...for once.I told the kids to make a funny face...we went inside the animal hospital and got up-close and personal with exotic animals...Gina had a blastI think this was the highlight of the zoo for the boys...
I am so thankful for them for putting this on. This is the second year that we went to this event. It gives the kids a chance to let loose and be kids without all the looks and whispers. It was a perfect ending to a perfect day on Friday.
