The past few weeks in my household have been nothing less than hectic. Between major projects and late hours at work for both me and The Hubs, getting in the habit of daily “homework” with my kindergarten son, ballet class for my daughter, weekend soccer games and my father being ill and in the hospital – we frankly haven’t had much “family fun-time” as of late.
Thankfully, that will all change when we take the kidlets back to the Bronx Zoo’s Boo at the Zoo and totally start to get into the Halloween spirit!
My kidlets love animals, all different kinds and the more exotic, the better. Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! So it’s a good thing that we live near the world’s largest metropolitan zoo, the Bronx Zoo, which is run by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). The Hubs and I take the kids there several times a year. It’s a great way to spend the day, see animals and learn about animal conservation efforts both in our country and around the world.
Starting this Saturday, April 21, the Bronx Zoo kicks off its third annual Animal Tales Extravaganza that will run every weekend through Sunday, June 30. This special spring program is packed with elephant-sized fun featuring a full schedule of live family entertainment including interactive attractions, music, performances, character meet and greets, arts & crafts, author readings and even a Rainforest Creature Parade!
