It's too hot to go out- let's go to the zoo!

Got a text from KC Sunday morning, wanting to take us all to the zoo.  I said, why not?  Worst that could happen is I would keel over dead and they'd be on the hook for me instead of Laurie....

Aaron sporting his spanking-new haircut, Peanut wondering what we're up to

"I dunno what it is, but it looks like FUN!"

"Gampaw, I like climbing on rocks!"

Driving the safari jeep

Mommy and Aaron take the sky lift.

That thing takes a lot longer when you're on the ground.  We were sure they jumped, but here they come..

Them Mongooses are neat!

"Hey, I'M the king of the zoo!"

"Daddy, look!"

You know, I would bet this would be his favorite part...
Mommy:  "Everybody smile- 1, 2, 3... Hey!  I don't want your butt!"

Close as I could get to Peanut feeding the giraffe

"Hey, dipstick! Show 'em the one where you tried to hold the camera over the crowd to get it..."


We offered to lock him in... it started a long story on why we would soon wish we had him back.  Got to give him credit; even though he re-started the story with the opening line of , "You'll get bored by the time...", getting interrupted each time, the last by me saying, "By the time you get to the end of this sentence...", he stuck with it until he got to the point that we all ignored anyway.

This goat was cool.  The other one, not pictured, tried to eat Aaron's ear, my leg hair, and KC's shirt in that order.  This one though, did have a hanging poopy that Peanut tried to grab before Daddy said, "For the love of all that's holy, NO!"

The lizards in the middle of the picture, I noticed, were in a somewhat troubling display...

    ---I'm sure that everyone looked to be having an excellent time in spite of whatever heat was in tow.
    I did like KC's the same one.
    And you do have a knack of making things funnier just by your captions.
    ---You know, in about 70 years, Peanut will have that "same"
    ---Great picture of the lion, too.
    ---What? No otters?
    They got Sundays off?
    ---Goat eating ears?
    That's a new one on me.
    Grabbing poop? Not recommended for young'uns.
    ---Ah, the zoo shop...where even the STUFFED critters get "busy" upon the shelves...heh.
    (they are cold-blooded...maybe they were just keeping cool?)

    Very nice tour...been a while (about a decade or more) since Wifey and I were there.

    Glad you all had a good time.

    Stay safe up there, brother.

    1. 1- Many residents of the zoo were skipped after the rain forest, as the heat was a tad extreme.

      2- Keeping warm... that does make sense...

  2. Trips to the zoo are awesome even when it's bloody hot
