So the fabulous weather this weekend has got me thinking it's about time for a zoo trip. I know it's getting hot and humid again this week but maybe in a few weeks fall will be here for good. So, shall we try to pick a date maybe late Sept or early Oct??

I'm good for any day but Thursday...

Who's in?!?

ETA: Heading to the zoo on Friday the 24th!!

I can do a Monday or Friday, and we have a membership that can get one additional adult in free.

So unless anyone interested has serious objections, sounds like Friday is a winner! Maybe Sept 24 or Oct 1 - any thoughts?

Sounds fun but I can't make it on a weekday, Amina is in school and I couldn't go without her. So I guess we won't make it.

I can't really do a weekday, but maybe we could do a Saturday trip sometime, too! That way those who have older kids in school, or who are working during the week, or whatever else, can go!

Subbing, in the hopes that we would be able to go. It depends...but we may be able to make it. However, we would almost definitely be able to do a Saturday! That would be awesome.

(where is the zoo??)

The zoo is in Asheboro which is about 1.5-2 hours away depending on where in the triangle you are (and how fast you drive!). It's a pretty straight shot down 64 if you are in the Raleigh area (although I typically go 85 to 49 to 64 since I'm in N. Durham).

It sounds like the 24th is a go for lots of folks so should we make it a date?

I'm also possibly game for a Sat trip if folks want to suggest a date.

Wow, that's too far away for us to travel at this point.

Ncbelle, the 24th is a date! (At least with us. )

As for a Saturday trip, we might be game for that, too, depending on when. Suggestions?

Are we going to aim to be there at the opening time? I think 9am? Also, should we attempt to park in the same lot? Last time was a little confusing!

So the 24th is a date

I vote for getting there at 9 - that is when they open. And definitely meeting at the same continent I usually start in Africa but it doesn't really matter to me if someone has a strong preference.

We shall rendezvous at 9am in Africa.

N doesn't know I'm planning this and asked me today if we could go to the zoo again sometime. I told him I'd think about it.

SJ and B&G, you mean you don't want to spend the 1st hour running back and forth between continents, trying to find everyone??

Africa at 9am....good with us. If anyone is interested in carpooling, I can drive the truck and can get at least 2 more car seats in it if needed. Not sure if that would make the drive better or worse, with more kiddos to either entertain each other, or fight, LOL.

How are we still feeling about Friday?? Weather.com says 91 with a low of 62 in Asheboro on Friday. But the Fish was just saying that the humidity might be up at the end of the week.

On the plus side, looks like Sunday will be nice

Ok - yay

The forecast is back down to 89 for Asheboro - maybe it will keep going down!
