Yes, I'm posting early this morning. Well, it's not as early now as it was earlier. Know what I mean? :)
So, yesterday we went to the zoo. Here's some pics. Yes, we try to wear the same color when we go out. And usually people know why. A small child was asking her parents why we were all in the same color. The dad answered that is was so we could keep up with everyone. That's most of it. And I'm just weird like that...wanting everything to match.
Also most of the time it's just adults that ask the questions like "Are they all yours?" "Is this a group i.e. school, club, etc?" But yesterday a boy about 9 or 10 asked. "What group is this?" Um...just my family. "Is it a family reunion?" Nope, just all my kids! Kind of funny actually. He was a nice kid.
But, I digress. On with the show...
This bird? Yeah, he flew over my head and clicked my sunglasses with his feet. Close, huh? We got to watch the bird show. A lot of neat birds, but I don't have room to put them all on here. I'll give you one more pic of a bird. This is my 8 year old son's favorite bird.
The Scarlet Macaw
Almost the whole crew looking at the elephants while standing in the mist they had spraying out.
Helping out and having fun doing it
A very rare picture of my oldest (she doesn't like having her picture taken). Check out that thing in front of her. An elephant's foot print. HUGE!
A Bengal tiger
The 5 year old loves tigers. He has two stuffed tigers that are his favorite things. One is a regular orange tiger and he's had it for a couple of years. Then just recently, we found one exactly the same only white. He loves them!
Having a blast!
Just having fun at the zoo
"Helping" push the wagon (my husband's great idea - a wagon is a lot easier than 3 strollers - and more fun!) And it just happened to match yesterday. We have other colors we wear, too. :)
Everyone gets to ride! (the 9 year old)
Back to the bird show. Einstein is world famous and belongs to the Knoxville Zoo. She was at the bird show. Pretty funny. You can see her here. (Yeah, why did they name a female bird Einstein?)
And that was yesterday. We love going to the zoo. We have a membership and definitely get our money's worth. This weekend we might be going to Roanoke, VA and going to the Mill Mountain Zoo. It's a reciprocal zoo to ours; which means since we have a Knoxville Zoo membership we get in free at reciprocal zoos. Nice.
And now since I've uploaded a ton of photos, it's definitely NOT as early as it was earlier. Got it? Good.
Until next time...
