Dad was honored all day long with "Dad's Day at the Zoo." They were admitted free and could register for free gifts. In addition to train rides, the event brought families out to see the animals and spend a little quality time with their children- no matter how young or old they were. Some of the animals were easy to spot, but with others it took the kids and Dad a little bit longer to find them. (------------)
