Yesterday we did a Family Day, something we've been trying to incorporate this into our months of doing something as a family at least once a month. I'd love to do something every single weekend, but doing something once a month at this point is the best option and gives the boys, especially Joshua, something to look forward to each month. We plan to try and do something new as well.
Austin Zoo and Animal Sanctuary
This is definitely not your typical zoo of Lions, Tigers, Zebras, Giraffes, etc. It did have Lions, Tigers and Bears, but mostly had goats and sheep, and some monkeys. It is more of a rescue or sanctuary for animals that have been bought to be pets, but aren't taken care of or not allowed to be had as pets.
The boys loved it and it we will be going back another day.
