The absolute perfect back to school trip has arrived. An afternoon at Brookfield Zoo for free.

Mom and Dad, you made it. School it back in session next week and that means you can actually enjoy the last few days of summer with your kids.

Sure you love them every day, but knowing they'll be at school for the better part of the next nine months makes the rest of this week bittersweet.

And now you can take them to Brookfield Zoo for free.

The deal actually started August 6, but who wants to go to the zoo in thunderstorms? Not me!

Tomorrow will be rain free and full of fun when your kids get into Brookfield for nothing.

Parents will have to pay admission, as well as parking, but maybe get a bunch of parents together and draw straws to see who has to take the kids.

Catch Midday Michelle on 97 ZOK from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
