Summer = Family Adventures!

School is out … summer is in … and families around the country are gearing up for their next great adventures. What better place to start than a trip to your local zoo or aquarium accredited by the Association of Zoos &; Aquariums (AZA)? Frito-Lay’s variety packs – the snack line known for fueling fun for the whole family – has teamed up with the AZA for special offer.

We just went to the zoo the other day and it’s so cool to see all the amazing exhibits! Lisa was the only one home with us and so we gave her the choice of what we were going to do and she picked the zoo. Ever since she was little, she has watched Animal Planet channel and cared about every kind of animal. She wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up or a star on the Animal Planet channel. So this was a perfect outing as a family. We live in Utah, and every year we make it a point to visit the zoo. It’s so cool because it always seems to be changing and growing. Our zoo has even brought in some dinosaurs to mix it up. I don’t think it matters what the age of your kids, everyone in the family loves a day at the zoo!


This summer, families who purchase specially marked Frito-Lay variety packs can get a free kid’s pass to a participating AZA-accredited zoo or aquarium where they can get out and experience wildlife. You experience the zoo and make memories that will last forever with your family.
In addition to the free kid’s pass, families who visit also will have access to fun digital tools for their next summer experience:

o Through the website, families can use the AZA-accredited zoo and aquarium locator to find participating locations.

Additionally, they can download AZA’s “Tails Up” app to learn more about wildlife while on the go this summer.

o And the fun doesn’t stop there. Frito-Lay is giving families an opportunity to unleash their fun sides on through “Wild Like Me,” a new digital experience that invites animal lovers to upload a photo of themselves mimicking their favorite animal’s facial expression for a chance to win a trip to Atlantis Paradise Island resort in The Bahamas. Visit for complete sweepstakes details.

If you haven’t gone for a while, now is the time! My Zac, always loved seeing the zebras because it starts with the letter “Z”. What’s your favorite animal?

Thank you Frito-Lay for sponsoring this post. All opinions expressed are my own.
