  1. Pinned!

  2. I love this round-up! Thanks for your hard work. Sharing on all of my social media.

  3. Just a heads up for the Military folk. My sister’s family went and they wouldn’t give the discount to the younger children because they didn’t have a military ID (they don’t give one to the kids under 10). Everyone else got in free, other than the younger kids. Weird and lame-o. Nice for those with ID’s, though.
