A while back we went to the zoo with B's family. We go every year as part of my father-in-law's work outing. It is a lot of fun. There are bagels, apples, and juice. There are also free items such as squeeze toys, toothbrush, mouse pads and band aids. We all know how I need band aids.
Typically, however, it is either rainy, cold, or both when we go. This year did not disappoint. It rained. It POURED. We stayed anyway and even went around to look at the animals who were actually quite active in all of that rain.
Of course nothing ever goes as smooth as planned either. I was supposed to meet B at the zoo. When I arrived I realized my cell phone was dead. So dead I couldn't call or get messages. I couldn't even text. Have you ever tried to find someone in a torrential downpour? Almost near impossible. Good thing B has eagle eyes and spotted me. I would have spotted him first but he was decked out in heavy duty work clothes (smart guy).
In any event, here are some pictures that were taken on that wet, but fun, day!
This tiger was attempting to come over and kill us. I wish I were kidding:
You are probably thinking to yourself, "Wow! B is such a tolerant husband posing for such a goofy shot." Well, this was ALL B's idea. I think I am a tolerant wife, actually:
The people nearby were cracking up at B posing for that picture. I had a hard time not laughing myself.
Here we were in a tunnel under the polar bears. They were quite active that day too:
And everyone said "HE GOT A FISH" when he, well, got a fish:
And everyone said "How cute, he is sitting down eating his lunch." Bet the fish didn't think it was cute.
Lucas was the only one totally prepared for the day. However, he did not stay in there very long. I think he felt like a bubble boy or something:
Lucas and his Dad put their hands on the snow/ice to make hand prints. Lucas is such a brave boy. I don't even put my hands on there. However, we all know my hands are like ice this time of the year anyway:
And just like the home tour, there is B - WAY ahead of me. Always so busy with places to go:
