A Day at the Zoo

My Sweetie

My fish was this big!!!

28 JUN: Today we went to the Honolulu Zoo. It was Military Appreciation Day. The event is open to all military familes with free admission to the zoo, free lunch and even free ice-cream.
This event is sponsored by many companies and organizations. My employer donated money and was a corporate sponsor. I was given the opportunity to represent the company at this event. This gave me VIP parking and entrance to the zoo before it opened to the public.
We invited our friends to join us and we all had a great time!!!
The first thing on the agenda was the opening ceremony by the mayor, Mufi, who gave a speech. He talked about the importance of the military presence in Hawaii. I had the opportunity to meet the mayor and did not miss out on the photo op.
The zoo is not quite as those in large cities. It didnt have many animals but overall, it was lots of fun!!! They had lots of arts and crafts for the kids. Rob made me a visor! So--cute and I have to admit it helped because it did get really hot! We had a great day!
