We promised the kids last week that would take them to the zoo that Saturday. After all, they are open year round and my sister gave our family an annual pass for Christmas last year.
The weather here in Utah has been extremely abnormal for December and January. Mother nature is NOT doing her job. Maybe she’s just getting forgetful in her old age. I’m thinking of submitting my resume for the job. Where would one send such a resume, anyway? Hmmm… I would promise to make it snow on Christmas Eve and Christmas every year. Didn’t happen this year, now did it? NO! My kids were outside in light jackets! We’ve had nothing but light dustings of snow, and only a couple of them at that. I want a redo!
Man, I am good at getting off subject.
Anyway, the weather has been unseasonably warm so we figured why not? We should take them to the zoo and see how the animals act in cool-ish weather.
Wouldn’t you know it, we woke up Saturday to this…
But once you make a promise to kids there’s no turning back, at least not without sad puppy dog faces making you feel guilty for going back on your word. So we bundled everyone up and off we went!
We found most of the animals to be more active, even as the snow was flying. Most, not all…
The monkeys gave the kids a good show. Maybe it was one I wasn’t ready to explain to them at this point. They just think they were climbing on each others backs… we’ll leave it that.
This is NOT one of the PG-13 monkeys… He just wanted to get the tassels on Anthony’s hat.
