My mom and dad are in town.
See how casually I typed that? What I really should have said is…
MY MOM AND DAD CAME TO VISIT!!! WOO!!!! FOR A WHOLE WEEK!!!!!
We went to the zoo one night, just before closing… and we stayed. And stayed. And stayed. It was beautiful and cool and the animals were all up and active. We were the only ones there, which was fabulous until a security van pulled up alongside and said “um, the zoo closed hours ago. Can you please go now?”
Sorry, zoo, but we had the time of our lives. We saw grizzly bears up on their hind legs fighting each other, wolverines in a very noisy brawl, pumas on the prowl, a brand-new baby monkey, playful otters, and really cool bats. All the photos.
