Friday, I received the Parkway P.A.T. newsletter. After reviewing the newsletter and noticing the changes the program has had to make, I was so upset with the state for cutting the program budget. Our kids are the ones that are going to suffer. What a shame! Thankfully our P.A.T. program still exits and is still functioning. They are just not able to offer as many free activities as they have in the past. Actually they are only able to offer 3 from September to December, which is significantly lower than what they used to offer. The legislature and people who had a hand in cutting this program's budget should be greatly ashamed of themselves. Cutting a program that helps our children is not a smart idea.
Anyway, I am not going to rant about that anymore in this post.
Dave, Kaitlynn and I met Hanna and Brandon at the Zoo. We looked at the big cats, zebras, camels and giraffes. We watched the sea lion show, which was really awesome!
We went to the Primate House, Reptile House and The Penguin and Puffin Cove.
Kaitlynn, Hanna and Brandon rode the carousel.
We rode the train.
After the train ride, we met Cynthia, Mike, Annabelle and Alayna at Lakeside and ate dinner.

We headed over towards Lakeside Cafe where the music was playing and met up with Teri, Hayden and Quin.

We had another fun night at Jungle Boogie!
We visited MawMaw that evening for a little bit, since she's been under the weather for almost a week.
Kaitlynn was very sad when MawMaw told her she had to get rid of Pumpkin. She was crying so hard and saying she missed her.
It was a late night out for us. Kaitlynn fell asleep in the car. I was craving cheese dip, so Dave made some that was very yummy. We tried to watch "Alice In Wonderland" but got too tired.
