BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — The weather wasn't exactly a mom's best friend this Mother's Day. However, Some brave mom's decided they wouldn't let a little rain ruin their day. They took their kids to BREC's Baton Rouge Zoo!
The zoo hosted special Mother's Day event including having crafts for the kids.
Many of the animals decided to put on a snooze instead of a show. Still, the kids had a blast strolling around watching the animals.
Moms got a chance to make fun memories with the family.
"The kids wanted to go to the zoo, and I felt it was good to do on Mother's Day. We didn't really have nothing planned," Jaba Lacy, mom, said.
She later said, "... It was fun when it started now I'm tired."
Karen Musselman brought her kids to the zoo.
Musselman, said, "It's just better than being home trying to spend the day (there.)"
The first one hundred mom's to hit the zoo Sunday got a free flower for Mother's Day.
