Blahh

Days like today make being a single mom suck. I keep seeing commercials for the St Louis zoo and would just love to take the kids for a weekend. It's a 4 1/2 hour drive so I would need a rental car and a hotel room. Not to mention the parking fee, admission, and food and drinks for the day. Blahhh.

Can you maybe get friends or relatives to go and split the cost of like the room and carpool? When I take the kids to the zoo I always pack lunches because the food at the zoo is way to expensive.....and it is not even all that good.

Quoting jeepingirrl:

I agree...it's a good idea to pack a lunch instead.  Also, do you find that outings like that can be overwhelming?  Sometimes I want to take the kids for trips like that, but handling my one and three year old on that type of outing is nearly impossible.  That's why I think it may be a good idea to maybe get a friend to go with you.

I actually talked to my mom about it and we may go when she's on vacation this summer. She has a newer car and we could split the costs for the hotel.
