Our Second Family Road Trip (Zoo)

This blog article was originally posted on my first blog In Our Pond.  I started out trying to put all my travel content on my homeschooling blog, but it grew to be too big.  So, I'm moving all the road trip stuff over here!  In Our Pond will now be exclusively for homeschooling and parenting content, while this blog (Party Through the USA) is for all the family travel posts.  Check them both out!

We had an opportunity this weekend to visit my sister, who is going to college in Portland.  Of course, we took it.  Besides, it was a chance for another road trip, and we were even promised a day at the zoo.  We had so much fun at the Oregon Zoo.  The kids got see real animals, which was pretty amazing for them.  They also got to ride the zoo train and a historical train in downtown Portland.  It was a great weekend.  See....

Dragonfly decided that "all the kids" should wear jean overall shorts for zoo day.  So, that's what I packed.  I think it motivated her to use the potty all day since she didn't want to have to change and ruin the "look."  Now, that's a mommy win!

Our zoo day snacks: jungle vines (licorice), animal crackers, and monkey mix (dried bananas and raisins).  It was nice to have some "themed" snacks to grab when the kids needed a boost.  I should have packed some "trains" snacks, too, since we went on so many of them that day.
