3 Boys & The Zoo

This weekend, I was able to convince Wil, Sid, and Nate to get out of the basement and into the sunlight. I told them that I wanted to go to the zoo. I haven't been there in so long, so I brought it up with them, and they agreed to go with me. The weather was amazing. It was warm enough to not need a coat and was only slightly cold when the occasional breeze went by. Being outside totally energized me, but it sucked the life out of Nate. It was so much fun though. I was the navigator so I got to hold the map. The boys pretended that they were allergic to the sun. Sid and Nate also tried to throw me through a waterfall into a pool of water in the inclosure that housed the white croc. Of course, I was most interested in seeing the wolves, and of course, they were hiding from me. When we went by their cage (on the top path), we couldn't see them. When we went by the cage next to the small animals enclosure, Wil saw one for a second up by the top path (of course) but as soon as I looked up, it had moved out of sight again. I got some pretty cool pictures though. I also got a cool new "staff" AKA walking stick with a tiger head on it. I love it!

Wow, it's been about 6 months since we've been to the zoo last, but it seems like it was a lot longer than that. We love the zoo! I heard that one of the elephants is pregnant. But We'll have to wait another year or so I think till we can see that baby. Man, I would hate to be an elephant and be pregnant for about 2 years. Yuck! Hopefully we'll get to the zoo soon. We may have some time in about a month when "Joseph..." closes. Nate is so busy with that role. But he is loving every minute of it. You should come see it. It is Amazing!!
