It was a beautiful (read, HOT AS ALL GET OUT) day in Pittsburgh. Perfect for a trip to the Zoo to enjoy the Pressley Ridge Ice Cream Fundae. And ever since, the big kids have been recalling the fun they had at what they are calling Sunday Fundae.
We arrived right as the gates were opening and took our time showing Grammie around our favorite exhibits. So much time that we only got to three of the six ice cream stations before they either ran out or closed early.
The kids even got to meet Mr. McFeely (from Mister Rogers) – he’s on the board of Pressley Ridge and the Zoo, so this event is super important to him.
Since we didn’t make it to the voting station before the zoo closed (we REALLY took our time and enjoyed), our votes for favorites were the Moose Tracks and Black Raspberry.
If you love the zoo, giving back, and ice cream (or any of the three), you should watch for next year’s Ice Cream Fundae dates. Evan and I have gone two years in a row now, and we are counting down to the next one already.
Pressley Ridge is dedicated to families being healthy and happy together – you know, something I advocate big time. You can read more about this non-profit here: pressleyridge.org. // I was invited to attend this event in exchange for blog posts to promote it. All opinions, however, are 100% my own.
