No Directions for the Wrong Way

Horns and Buckeyes won!

I about had a heart attack watching the last part of the Texas game. Really guys? UCF and you squeaked by.

Snuggled on the couch with Pete's girls post game and bbq. It was sooo nice to see them. It wasn't awkward at all for any of us and I am so very thankful for this.

I didn't get to see any pro ball today as we were at the zoo. Apparently the Cowboys won and Seahawks didn't.

Zoo = Good times.

We made T and Snookums wait. Sorry guys! Thanks for being patient!

We now know how to get there. Who knew you won't get signs pointing you toward the zoo if you are going the wrong way? Directions might be a good idea for our next field trip; making a mental note.

Ace stayed in so it was T, Snookums, Maricel, J, and me. Oh and my invisible boyfriend. He was the best date. He might be making future appearances. Y'all wanna' help name him? Or should we just let a name come to us?

The weather was blah but hey, it meant less crowds and not having to fight with lots of people to see the animals.

I would love to tell you we got lots of good pictures but yea, not so much.

Don't hate on a gray Pacific Northwest day.

It is beautiful in its own way.

Watching the walruses play was my favorite I think. Oh and watching one of them take a poo right in front of a little boy's face at the glass was priceless.

The otters were adorable too. J and I were convinced they were playing catch me if you can, hide and seek, etc. Each time I was lined up and ready to take a shot, they would hide, go under water, roll but as soon as I put the camera down, they would pop up again. Little stinkers.

Ruldoph doesn't live here. I had no idea horns could grow straight up like that. I wonder if all the other reindeers poke fun and won't let him play in their reindeer games.

This is Maricel's secret admirer. He luuuurves her. He, or maybe it was a she, was chilling and checking her out in the worst way. They have a special connection.

I forget what these are called. Pretty cool funky looking animals huh?

What is a trip to the zoo without an elephant sighting?

That is one big hairy beast. I kept wondering what it smelled like up close.

These bad boys were just hanging out like this. Maybe it was about to be feeding time? Watching a movie? Praising the fish god?

I do like to visit the zoo but on the flip side I get sad about animals being caged in. Not being able to live their lives in a natural habitat.

Of course living in a controlled environment equates to virtually no predator threat and a steady food supply. It still does sadden me to watch them go around and around in circles, pace, swim a lap in a little area compared to the wild.

I'm not too sad to keep visiting zoos or wildlife parks. I guess that makes me a contradiction.

On that note, I'm signing off. I have to be up nice and early for a day trip down south. Hope y'all have a good day.

Peace and Love Peeps.

Beau and I went to that zoo for our first date. =)

I'm a Michigan fan, so I guess we hate each other now. ;-)

Sounds like a fun weekend, and glad the time with the girls wasn't akward.

Good for the soul is an excellent way to describe the time.

No hating going on here. Could make for some good debates/conversation later but no hating for sure.
