Frugal Fridays - Stay-cation

We definitely could not afford to go away for the entire two weeks that Hubby had R&R (plus it is sometimes nice to relax at home), so we planned a stay-cation for the second part of his leave.  We found cheap (or free!) things to do around town.  We did treat ourselves to some extra meals out, but were also able to save money by cooking some meals at home.  Here are a couple of the highlights:

This is a very nice (and free) park in downtown Little Rock with water fountains for the children to play in and a very intricate playground with tunnels, slides, boulders, and ladders.

We buy and annual pass each year and for us it has definitely been worth it!  Hubby was away when the zoo opened the new penguin exhibit, so this was his first time seeing them.  They are always fun to watch!

"M" is roaring like a lion.
