out & about: the zoo

Not too long ago, on a sunny, windy, glorious, midwest kind of day...
...we took three three little monkeys...

...and a monkey-in-training to the zoo

They were delighted with the animals and spent a great deal of time in particular watching tigers and bears with only a sheet of glass separating them.  Fascinating but unfortunately our camera had run out of juice by then.  So, here's a picture of a moose.  What a funny creature with it's top-heavy and dainty legs structure. 

Oh, and I took the kids in to visit the goats.  Having done this before, I don't know why I forgot how eager they can be to find get a hold of their grub.  I danced with a few and left with the extra adornment of hoof marks on my sweater.  However, that did not deter me from asking the mister if one day when I grow up, I could have my very own goat.  He didn't answer, but I'm holding out hope.  Perhaps, I should start with chickens.

All in all, a good day.

Oh honey...really, that last picture is a terrible representation of you! You should've asked someone to take a family shot.
Missing you, as always
