The nine dollars a head were spent well. The Phoenix zoo was lit up with reds greens whites yellows oranges. People everywhere. Any extra activity was four dollars a head. We saw three animals, one otter, four zebras, and one elephant secluding in the shadows. The gift shop was open. Santa was visited. The free zoo concept is honored now in this family.
Earlier we went to two of the Chandler area parks. They have nice parks around here. The weather was sunny and bright. Kids ran around climbing, chasing, jumping. We headed home and prepared for our zoo trip.
We slept in until about nine a.m. Slowly and casually getting around to catching the day time activities. Coffee was welcomed while phone calls from friends rolled in. As a family we put the Christmas cards together for mailing. We decided to get out and enjoy the weather at the local park. This turned out to be the highlight of the day.
