When you were younger did you ever day dream about your future? Did you hope that you would find your soulmate and you would go places together? I know I sure did. I wanted to walk around places holding hands and stealing kisses here and there. I love all of the firsts I am experiencing with Jared.
This wasn't the first time I'd been to the zoo, obviously, but it is the first time I went with my Jared.
Our first stop was to see
Jared's Twin the monkies. I love their playfulness!
I really have no idea what this animal is called but I think he falls un the "so ugly it's cute" category. What do you think?
If I had a bigger purse I probably would have snatched this little guy up and taken him home. precious or what?!
This is not the jungle cruise people, these are real Hippos
Your typical "Where's Waldo" moment. Which one is the tree and which one is the deer?
Did you know that Koala's sleep so many hours because of the Eucalyptus they eat? It takes a long time to digest..Zoo Fact!
Dumbo, Is that you? What big ears you have..
Have you ever heard a Lion Roar? not in the Lion King or those buttons you press at the Zoo but an actual roar from a lion. We DID! It was UH-MAZING! He was snoozing away then got up and just started roaring. He probably went on for 2 minutes or so. The crowd was in awe and we all started to applaud when he was finished. Talk about an unforgettable moment.
Unfortunately for her, the lioness was attempting to nap while he went on and on in lion speak.
And my most favorite picture of the day:
