We decided to go to Hogle Zoo this morning. Bad idea. Apparently they opened a new Dinosaur experience in the park and it was packed by 10am. But, the kids were very excited to go so we braved the crowds and it actually turned out to a really fun experience (minus the annoying mom with 4 bratty kids cutting in lines and pushing other kids off things).
There are lots of animatronic dinosaurs throughout the park. Some roar, some move, some even squirt water at the kids. And of course the dig-for-dinosaur bone pits are always a big hit. So, if you haven't been in a while and are thinking of going, let me know. Our pass expires the end of July and I have a feeling we'll be going back a lot between now and then. We'd love to meet you there!
