Knoxville Zoo Buy One Get One Free Tickets in December!



To encourage East Tennesseans to discover why a December visit to Knoxville Zoo  is a great time to see plenty of active animals, the zoo is offering “Buy One, Get One Free” admission tickets through December 31, 2014.

Many zoo animals, including red pandas and river otters, actively enjoy the cooler weather outdoors.  On days when the temperature drops below 40 degrees, some animals will be moved indoors, but visitors can still see many of their favorite animals, including elephants, gorillas, penguins, chimpanzees and reptiles, in their indoor viewing areas.

A December trip to the zoo may even include a visit with Santa Claus too, when Pilot Flying J’s Wee Play Adventure indoor play area hosts Santa’s Village, a special holiday encounter and photo opportunity. Santa’s Village will be open for Christmas wishes and photos December 4th through 7th and 11th through 14th from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. each day.

Half-price admission tickets can be purchased at the zoo ticket window during regular zoo hours and online at Discounted admission tickets must be used by Feb. 28, 2015, and cannot be combined with any other promotion, discount, or coupon.

Free Carseat Canopy (Help Me Decide!)



I got one of these Free carseat canopies for #4.  I loved it and he still sleeps with it two years later. :)

Now that surprise baby girl is on the way I am going to get another one! My only problem is I cannot decide between the “Angelina” or the “Tyler”. I mean we have nothing pink in this house and she will have four older brothers, so the Angelina makes sense. But, red is my favorite color and I really like the Tyler. Ahhh decisions…. What do you think?!?
