While driving one day, I heard on the radio about Taco Tuesday at the Aviary. $2 admission plus 2 tacos. Done.
Hailey invited her friend Grace to come with us, because everything is always more fun with a friend. Right? We also invited Rara Park to join in on the fun.
Of course the girls weren't interested in eating tacos. No complaint from me! That just meant more tacos for Rara and I. Good thing I was a prepared mama and had packed crackers with cheese and meat that the girls could eat instead. (Those tacos were delicious, by the way.)
After eating lunch we made our way around the aviary. We saw all sorts of birds: pelicans, vultures, hawks, eagles, owls, flamingos, a peacock, parrots, toucans, and all sorts of tropical birds.
I'd call the trip a success, even if those girls could care less about learning about the birds and more about roaming free. It's ok, we got out of the house, went somewhere different, brought a friend, enjoyed the sunshine, and ate tacos (or cheese and crackers).
