A Day at the Zoo

Tanner and I were bored one sunny weekend and decided to spend the day at the zoo. Having not been in almost three years (wow! Have we been here that long already?) it was fun revisiting. We also tend to get stuck in ruts on weekends sometimes, filling our days with chores and errands (booooring) so it was good to get out of the house and enjoy a nice activity together.

The zoo is undergoing renovation at the moment to expand the elephant habitat, so there were a few sites we didn't get to see. But it will be fun coming back in the future to see all the changes that are occurring. 

While we walked, we snacked on ice cream and had fun talking wedding plans and giggling over our upcoming honeymoon (we're going to Disney World and Harry Potter World!!) And despite the millions of kids and families who also happened to be visiting the zoo that weekend, all in all, it was a nice day out.

Mountain goat! He reminds me of my hike in Goat Rocks on the PCT. :)

Black bear!

Cool artwork near the vulture exhibit.

Sleepy polar bear. I would be sleepy too if it were 85 degrees out when it is supposed to be arctic. :(

Lions reportedly nap for 18-22 hours a day. Sounds like a good life to me.

Cheetah. Also napping.

Impala? Gazelles? Something like that.

My favorite!! Love me some giraffes. Tanner got to watch me giggle like a little kid when we got to this exhibit.

Flamingos. Being all pink and stuff.

AHHH! What is this creature?!

Just kidding. Isn't he a cutie? :)

In other news, I'm going to be starting my new job next week, so I'll be out for a week of training. The blog is taking a break, and my shop will unfortunately be closed starting tomorrow. (Booooo. So if you still need a Father's Day card, buy it now!)

See you soon!
