And one windmill down

If you have been reading here for any length of time, you know that I am engaging in a little one-woman crusade against family policies which aren't. The Shedd Aquarium has been the main target of my annoyance for quite some time based on the fact that they considered a family to be two adults and no more than four children (each additional child was charged an additional fine fee.)

Well, a good friend called to tell me this morning that she opened up the membership mailing which came to her in the mail to see if they had changed their policy... and they had! A family membership to the Shedd Aquarium now includes two adults and ALL children under the age of 18. Can you believe it? I hardly can, but am thrilled at the change. It's just good business in my opinion.

(And I am in no way so delusional to think that my constant rantings had anything to do with it. I don't have a big enough readership and they never really acknowledged my letters... ever. But that's OK. I'm happy with whatever means caused them to reconsider their policy.)

So, having gotten a ridiculously late start to the morning, I shall now go and see what I can salvage of the rest of it.

If you need more to read, I have a new article up about cooking together as a family.

Way to go. Who is to say that your letter didn't make them rethink their ridiculous policy.
Keep writing.

Good deal! That makes me want to make a special trip to Chicago to visit them! :)

Huzzah! We've run into the same issue. Or how about the time I had to pay for BUS PARKING for my 15 passenger van to take my family to the zoo? I'm still mad. So I know what a victory this is for you. :)
