I’m so excited for this Spring and Summer! I recently became a WCS Bronx Zoo/NY Aquarium Blog Ambassador. Which means in exchange for my event coverage and reviews, I received a Family Membership, but no other compensation, monetary or otherwise. But, don’t worry, you know I’m always honest in my opinion, so I’ll be unbiased about my event reviews also. 😉 You’ll see reviews after we attend an event and also announcements of events and programs. So keep an eye out!
And it’s perfect timing because now that lil man turns two this Summer, I’ll be able to take him to the Bronx Zoo and the Aquarium with our family membership! I was worried we wouldn’t be able to pull it off with money being tight these days, but everything fell into place. Very excited to be part of the Ambassador program. Woohoo!
Now, granted lil man will still be in the stroller, since I won’t be able to chase after him with my big belly, but nonetheless, he’ll get to enjoy seeing all the different animals and fish. No doubt, he’ll say “whoa” a lot when he sees all the large animals.
This weekend kicks off the Animal Tales Extravaganza at the Bronx Zoo for the third year. I can’t wait to attend in a couple weeks when our membership passes arrive. Lil man will have the chance to participate in additional activities from story time, create a puppet at the crafts area and meet different story book characters he now recognizes. If you don’t have anything to do on the weekends, you should take your kiddos to the Bronx Zoo… they’ll learn and have fun at the same time!
I just can’t decide which of these dates I want to go:
- April 21 and 22 – Storybook Fun with Curious George and meet & greet with Yo Gabba Gabba (12:30pm & 2:30pm at Dancing Crane Plaza)
