We attempted to go to the Memphis Zoo (which has just been rated America's #1 Zoo) yesterday and - apparently - we weren't the only ones with this fabulous idea! FYI: On Tuesdays (at 2pm) at the Memphis Zoo, Tennessee residents get in free w/a valid TN driver's license. We met some friends from church early to eat at McDonald's and then we headed toward the zoo. Note that I said "toward" the zoo...The line of traffic was unbelievable!!!! I heard from friends who actually made it inside and they said it was so crowded that they couldn't even see some of the animals in the exhibits. So - we gave up sitting in traffic and went to a nearby park (kids pictured below). I think they managed ok, don't you?? The weather was beautiful (mid 70s) and we're loving it!!
