A Day At the Zoo

Hey everyone. I am home on my lunch break, so I thought I would do a quick post. Yesterday was such a great day. We went out for brunch and enjoyed some delicious pancakes and sausage. I was able to enjoy a couple of great cups of coffee. After brunch, we headed to the Zoo. It was so much fun! We ended up doing the walk from end to beginning. We went to each "country" and enjoyed watching the wild life. My favorite exhibit is the gorilla exhibit, especially when the gorillas are inside playing. Yesterday was a treat because the gorillas were extra playful and we were in air conditioning! It was one hot mamma yesterday!

We walked throughout the zoo and ended up at the penguin exhibit just in time for them to feed. It was sooo cool! The penguin exhibit is one we haven't seen yet, so it was nice to watch them swimming around and waddling to get there food.

I took my camera, but found out that the battery was dead. I was only able to snap a few shots, but I won't be posting them. I just don't feel comfortable showing pictures of my kid on the Internet. Yes, I am a weirdo protective mother.

Anyway, after the visit to the zoo, we headed home to relax. I took a nap while Josh and the kid played a video game and cards. We decided not to cook dinner and went to Old Chicago to grab a pizza. After that, we went for ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery.

It was such a great day. I was able to hang out with my boys and relax. Today, it's back to the daily grind. I won't have another day off until Tuesday. Well, I better get back at it. Later...

I went to the zoo today with the daughter and grandkids. I've not been in a really long time and it was nice. Would be fun to do it without the little ones tho. Too much going here and there and I'm hungry and thirsty and I wanna see this and that and then this again.

I haven't been to the zoo in years and years. I'd love to do it on a cool day in the fall. Sounds like you had a wonderful day off!

I love the gorillas too. They are so entertaining and I can just watch them for hours (well maybe not HOURS)
