Saturday proved to be a true family day: the zoo, movies, and ice cream treat afterward! The animals were in full swing early in the morning, despite the heat. I suppose that's a positive of having an insomniac mother. Early morning adventures are always in the works. By noon we were in the movie theater watching "The Heat". It wasn't QUITE as funny as I had hoped, but I've been a difficult comedy audience lately. It takes more than a slap-stick joke to get a chuckle out of me anymore. Hopefully my mood will lighten as time goes on...
This gorilla was quite a show himself, though. He stole lettuce from the other three, sat on it, and then proceeded to eat his banana!
This little guy was the cutest thing we saw all day. Don't you just want to cuddle him!?
At our zoo there are a few peacocks roaming freely and we turned a corner to this guy spreading his feathers into this absolutely beautiful display.
The heat got to this couple all too soon. They were panting and lounging in true cat fashion by the time we made our way over to them.
This was just a fun snap from the day. That's my younger sister, Hannah, and who wouldn't want to climb on a giant bronze gorilla? Exactly.
