We went to the zoo with Bonnie and Diamond on Saturday, and it was so cool! Well, not "cool," literally... it was actually quite hot... but we walked around the Africa part of the zoo and enjoyed all of the wild animals. Then, when I was about to keel over from lack of water, we finally found an oasis in the middle of the desert. An oasis that charged $2.50 for a bottle of water. Well, I would have paid $5 for water at that point, and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Then Bonnie had to head home, and we were taking our sweet time, so she went on ahead while we toodled along. Mike even let me take a rest break and sit in the shade while he took the boys on a little walk of their own.
It was a great experience... I want to go there sometime without children and take some pictures. It's a bit hard to line up a shot when you have a little one pulling on your shorts/shirt/arm/whatever he can reach at the moment. The animals were beautiful (with perhaps the exception of the warthog), and SO much fun to watch!
So, forget the kids, MAMA wants to go to the zoo.
