On Sunday my mom swung by my house, Slayer covered her in kisses and then escaped into the front yard. I wrangled him by opening the car door because he always wants to go for a ride. We met my aunt, cousins and their kids at the zoo and as we walked through the gate were greeted by my aunt yelling “Marco!” to which I replied “Polo!”
For as close to the zoo as I live, I haven’t been in a couple years. The weather was rainy and cold on Saturday, but Sunday was sunny and in the 80s and turned out to be a perfect day to spend outside.
We searched for fat green frogs in a stream that ran on the side of the park.
It was pretty warm so most of the animals were passed out in the grass, fast asleep.
We brought healthy lunches and then ended up scarfing down funnel cakes and elephant ears slathered in butter and sugar.
By the time we left the zoo I was exhausted and passed out on the couch for three hours.
We’re planning a trip to the apple orchard next!
