Zoo day...and a little toy drop

Saturday we went to the Zoo and we had the BEST time! Ripstick Boy had been awarded a free membership due to good grades so it was basically 'his treat.' He was very proud of himself and we were too!

Right away we ran to the Reptile House and did a Toy Society drop. We haven't "dropped" in New Orleans yet so we thought it appropriate to do one here.





We really enjoyed the day and took WAY too many photos to share. But here are a few:

at the main entrance...


gimme the carrot...oh please!



Hey Baby, how YOU doin?



I got somthin in my hand and YOU can't see it.....

Hmmm....should I chew it NOW or save it for later?



We also got to see a special anamatronic exhibit.....can you guess what it was? They set it up in the old aviary building with fog and misters and low lights....then you walked outside where these really large ones were. All of the dinosaurs were life sized....VERY NEAT!


Afterwards, we went to one of our FAVORITE places to eat....Superior Grill!

Update 6/9: "Lily" the snake has been adopted....read about it here.

I wish I had known about the Toy Society much sooner. It would have been so cool to drop toys at rest stops as we go on vacation. oh well. next time.
