Going to the Zoo

Well, what else is there to do around here on a rainy Saturday other than go to the zoo? We thought we could beat the rain, but it pretty much started as so as we got there. So we just ran from tree to tree to stay dry and then we would poke our heads out to look at the animals whenever the rain let up. Hmm, the only thing about taking pictures at the zoo is all you get are backsides.

Savannah was pretty bummed that the ducks wouldn't let her catch them.

Joseph liked the lions the best.
After seeing "King-Fu Panda", any tiger is now "Tigress" from the movie. So the kids thought they were pretty cool for getting to ride "Tigress".

The monkeys and snakes are always a big hit.
Well, after the zoo we stopped off at Wendy's for lunch were we encountered the usual fight over, "who ate the most Frosty". Then we met up with Luke's dad who was in town for an auction, for some sort of hay baler. Of course it was an outside auction, and not too long after we got there it started raining pretty hard. The kids were hiding under RVs and any other sort of shelter they could find. It was pretty darn cold and Savannah had left her jacket at the zoo so, of course I had to give up mine. So, I'm freezing to death and finally convince Luke we should go. On the way home we stopped off at a furniture store that was going out of business and supposedly was selling off their stuff darn cheap... not. But we had gone in to look at bunk beds. As we are walking in I make the comment that "we look like a bunch of drowned rats". So the whole time we were in the store Joseph kept saying, "I want see rats, where the rats?" LOL!  We had a fun day.

And now, I am single for the next couple of days since Luke will be in Mexico for a business trip. Wish me luck!
