Everything I Needed to Know, I Learned at the Zoo

Over the weekend we took our first family trip to the zoo. I learned a lot of important things during our trip to the zoo, things like...


*Rhino butts are slightly bigger than mine.


*Little Miss loves flamingos because they're pink.


*A male walrus looks a lot like Mike Sr. from American Choppers and is scary big. (His flippers are flat on the bottom of this VERY deep pool.)


*My children are more interested in ducks than lemurs.


*Giraffes and elephants are my favorite animals.


*Tigers, lions, and bears are very big and very lazy.

*Baboons need pants.


*The zoo is very exhausting.


*You can take the boy of out the country, but you can't take the country out of the boy.


*And most importantly? I learned that my kids loved all of their daddy time and that being together as a family is a great way way to spend a day.

It's been forever since we have been to the zoo. We really ought to go. And there is a place near here that just does kangaroos. But all I can think about right now is sleep.

Enjoy that zoo time because my kids still talk about the times we went - we had yearly passes and went when they were bored. Just hopped in the car and looked at some baboons in need of some pants. Or some stinky elephants. Or whatever. And we had a bumper sticker that said "We Belong in the Zoo!!" They loved it.

It does seem like all of the animals are a bit lazy doesn't it? We just went to the Milwaukee Zoo over the weekend and most of the animals were just kinda laying there. I LOVE the giraffes though!!!
