Yesterday was a beautiful day, with temperatures pleasantly below normal for this time of year, so we decided an outdoor activity was a must.
We tossed around a few ideas and finally landed on the zoo.
It had been a while since we made the trip south, so we were all pretty excited.
And apparently we weren't the only geniuses with the zoo idea, because it was CROWDED. So, we slowly made our way around, and thankfully it looked like the animals were going to grace us with their presence.
I've been to the zoo before when we hardly saw a single animal, but we got lucky yesterday.
The monkey's were bein' all monkeyish and a lot of fun to watch!
And being true to our form, we were only about two exhibits in, and just HAD to stop to do what we do.
Eat a snack.
I think it had been an hour or so since we had eaten, and we had walked an 1/8th of a mile, so nourishment was necessary.
This gave us time to plan our execution of the zoo...
And enough time for me to realize I gave Hope mis-matched socks. Seriously G?
So, back to the zoo.
We passed this water that was covered in an algae, and Hope excitedly told me how it was covered in an allergy. Tee hee.
Seems like we spent a lot of time indoors looking at stuff.
And do you know what kind of animals are indoors? Yeah, the disgusting kind.
And just as we were headed out to leave, we passed a feeding time for a snake. OMG. I will spare you all the other pictures, but trust me, it was fascinating and creepy.
We left disturbed.
One simple solution for that.
Nothing a bag of popcorn the size of Rhode Island wouldn't fix.
And she did a pretty good job getting us where we wanted to go.
Despite the crowds...
And despite the frequent snack breaks....
We managed to see the entire zoo.
And we even had enough time to squeeze in another snack. I mean it had been all of 20 minutes since we had eaten, and Paul was famished.
Speaking of Paul....
Have I mentioned I love him? Oh yes, I love HIM. But his shoes?
This is when marriage vows ring true. For better or for WORSE.
Only love can look past his faults. Because as we all know, I'm perfect. And spectacular. (Surely everyone knows sarcasm is my love language)
And with that we wrapped up another successful day at the
snack bars the zoo!
