Something tells me it's all happening...


That's right folks, we took Azalea to the zoo for the second time in her little life. The first time I went with my friend Serin because she had a guest pass and Azalea was way to little to know or care what was going on but not this time! Nope, this time she was mezmerized by the animals. Whether or not she thought they were all "puppies" is another story.

Watching the elephants

She really enjoyed looking at the elephants. We even got to see a demonstration with the elephants and learn that the two there were 50 and 40 years old, and that they frequently get tested for TB which can be transferred from trainer to animal and vice versa. Huh. Crazy.


There was a lot of this happening all day.

Baby human!

Azalea was so good the whole time we were there even though it was hot and we didn't let her run around with the lemurs like she really wanted to. She held our hand when we wanted her to and any crying was usually remedied with her cuppy. I honestly have no idea where we got this obedient child.

Amazed at the giraffes

Family again!

I'm quite a sucker for the giraffes so that is where we had a quick family picture taken (thank you Brian).

Not quite as tall.

Azalea was pretty sure she could take on a Polar Bear and was planning a sneak attack. We told her she should probably wait a few years.

Too hot for penguins

It was too damn hot for penguins. (You're welcome Jenny.)

Zoo pass!

In the end we decided to get a zoo pass so that Azalea and I can go to the zoo WHENEVER WE WANT. Hooray zoos!

P.S. You can check out more pictures of our zoo trip on our flickr set.

Was this the Denver zoo? We went there once about 10 years ago. There was a rhino that was having a Dumbo's mom moment and was being restrained behind metal doors. I've never heard anything so frightening in my life. That trip also included a hippo with the runs flinging poo with it's tail. I thought only monkeys did that...

Good times.

Missed you at the Egan reunion this weekend.

Yay for a zoo pass!!! I love when they *get* the animals. That picture by the polar bear is stinking cute!

The penguin comment brought back vivid memories of one hot summer on the weed crew when you stepped out of the shade, crumbled in the sun onto the asphalt, and promptly called Gary telling him, "It's too damn hot for penguins." All of which was wonderful because we got off work early. :) Great photos of Azalea

Okay--so why has it taken me so long to realize that you have more than one blog? Good grief, behind the times, as usual.

I love seeing the cute photos of Azalea! And my favorite description (actually from the Green Mountain post: ". . . we would reek of hike. . ." and your dog would divorce you. Too funny, you!

AAAAHHHHH HHAA HHAA HHAA! I love it. I had forgotten all about that movie trivia. But when I read that all I could hear was Adam Sandler's drunk pathetic voice. Oh, good times. By the way you have a freakin' cute child. I love the one by the polar bear.
