I think then mini-golf is out....I just called and she doesn't believe it's friendly. I spoke with the woman at the Good Zoo (if that's something that we had in mind) and first it's $9 admission. She said there are hills but there's a shuttle this weekend that can take us to the different parts of the zoo and we just have to give them a tip

Thanks for checking on this, Michelle. I was thinking about calling the park, but I didn't have any time today to do it. I know lots of folks take their kids in strollers through the zoo. I can't remember for sure how steep the hills are since it's been a few years since I've been there. We'll see how it goes and use the shuttle if need be.

Well we had a great time! Clara and I met for Mass at St. Joseph Cathedral in Wheeling, then drove to Cheddars and met up with Zoom and had a wonderful and yummy lunch! Next we drove to the Good Zoo at Ogleby and had lots of fun, especially with the loriqeets (parrots)

Oh, then we headed to Cold Stone creamery for a little treat wink

All and all, I think it was a complete success!!! It was an absolutely beautiful day...saw alot of different kinds of animals and got to spend some time with friends hug

Hopefully we can have a few more people at the next little gathering crossfingers but no matter what we do, we always enjoy each others company hug wave

And Michelle got quite a workout pushing my Rolling Along up some of the hills in the zoo. A few times I was concerned that she might be over-exerting herself.

We did have a great time Jim biggrin We don't have anything else scheduled, but as you know, anyone can pull a group together....so if you have an idea, put it out there in the forums and see who's interested...I know a couple of times last year I wasn't able to make it, so whoever is available sort of gathers together crossfingers
