Can you believe we haven't hit up the zoo since like, forever ago? I think we went one or two other times since then but I have no documentation of said visit. Let's just say, it's been awhile. The bears hadn't even come out of hibernation yet! Anyways, it was the Saturday of the holiday weekend and the kids were at each other since practically dawn and we just knew we couldn't stay home the whole day. It wasn't warm enough for the pool... we knew the park would be a mad house and so the zoo it was. Lunch packed and out the door we went!
On a side note here, I used to be all like oh Letty will always take a packed lunch from home, why would anyone spend $11.25 per week for cafeteria food... blah blah eating my words because by the end of her first three days in school I was all, I get it! This is a pain! All I do is pack lunches! I was looking forward to not packing any lunches over the holiday weekend... and so naturally.... we did a picnic lunch twice. Sigh.
Anyways! We saw bears and snakes and giant spiders and elk and wolves and probably turtles doing questionable things but it was good! Such a gorgeous day to be out and about and lunching right in front of the animals. How rude of us, I know.
