Oooohhh! Look at those!!
The kids were pumped, totally excited. They could hardly stand still in line as we waited our turn to pay for admittance at the zoo.
Since Hubby was out of town all last week, on Saturday my brother and SIL were wonderfully willing to come with me to lend extra eyes and hands on this outing, not to mention their smashing company.
Just practicing for the twins!
As we approached the very first exhibit, the kids were excitedly pointing while jabbering away about the "awesome animals".
What are those weird things on his back?
Standing there at the exhibit as well, was a middle-aged couple and their two teen-aged children. After only a few seconds, the lady turned and stood directly in front of me, only looking away and said loudly to her family, "Well... *huffity huff huff* let's move somewhere else where there aren't noisy children in the way bothering us."
My brother and I just turned and looked at each other incredulously.
Hey! We have the same hair!
Was she serious? Umm... she does realize this is a zoo... right? And that it's outside... right?
Whatever, she can take her pointy nose somewhere else for all I care.
Mom, why is he trying to eat that?
We parted ways.
A few minutes later however, we happen to come upon them again at the penguin exhibit.
"Oh great!" The lady huffed again, "Now we have to go somewhere else!" And off they marched, muttering all the way.
Go on Savannah! Feed him! He's nice.
Wow. Heaven forbid there be happy children at the zoo.
And I admit, deep down my evil twin wanted to keep following them around the zoo.
Just for entertainment purposes.
Whoa! A mu-eee!
At another point, we passed them yet again and I heard the daughter muttering to her mother. All I caught was, "There they are again!"
I feel sorry for them actually. What a miserable and unfulfilled life they must have.
As for me, I'm loving mine thank-you-very-much!
Noisy kids and all.
