My mom requested that the girls have a Cultural Experience while we were in San Diego. Mom we took them to Hooters, how much more culture do you need?
We have tried to pack a lot into our trip. Monday we had planned to go to the zoo, that didn't work out. It rained for 2 hours in the morning and then we had a few short burst of rain during the day. We ended up driving through the Gas Lamp District and then to Balboa Park. We spent about 2 hours at a very nice playground with the kids. We learned that all of the kid friendly museums are closed on Mondays. We also went to Old Town for dinner and walked around. The kids watched ladies make corn and flour tortillas.
Tuesday we made it to the Zoo. We became annual pass holders. Now some of you are trying to figure out why would we join a zoo 400 mile from home, it was cheaper than the 5 day 2 park pass. My friend Ryan suggested we look into the annual pace price and what it comes with. It saved us $26 just getting in. Then it came with some free stuff and discounts in the park. Our total saving yesterday alone was about $50! Also some zoos honer annual passes from other zoos, we will look into this when we get home. I went to Rosie's Calico Corner, fabric shopping 7 miles away, while the girls napped.
Today we are going to breakfast at Big Kitchen and then we are heading out to the Wild Animal Park. Maybe another trip to the Rack too.
