Every once in awhile Tim and I need to remind ourselves of the benefits of being in the military: discounts at restaurants, a free checked bag at the airport, no taxes at the stores on post, free healthcare, etcetera. Because sometimes, the sacrifices get you daydreaming about the civilian life. Last week, the families on Fort Bliss got a nice boost from the El Paso Zoo--free membership for one year. Okay, so maybe it is worth it =). Adeline is at the stage where she can really enjoy the animals now, and maybe more than that, all the walking space. Pretty sure we'll be there on a weekly basis. What a generous gift to our Army families. Thank you, El Paso Zoo!
