Today I could not wipe the smile from my face…not that I tried or anything.
We went on a bike date to the fantastical Phoenix Zoo and had our share of adventures while we were there.
Here are the highlights:
|Mercats. I want one. Eh...let's make it two.|
|These guys are too fun to watch. They're so humanlike.|
|Birds intrigue me, and inspire me for outfit color-combos. |
After all, nature knows best!
|I wanted to snuggle these cheetahs. |
They were so romantic and their habit was majestic!
|The lions, not so much...|
|I love riding bikes!|
Okay, here's where the magic happened.
I love giraffes.
They have always been my favorite exhibit at the zoo
(Well, I have two favorites--i love the otters).
I just can't contain my happiness when i walk in and see them, with their necks all tangled up together, their big eyelashes, and their laffytaffy blue tongues.
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine getting up close and personal with my babies.
When I heard this was possible I, as BBL would put it, "geeked out!"
K, seriously, when this happened I felt like I was high on drugs (or what I imagine it might be like, since i have no first hand experience with said situation)
I took more pictures, basked in their splendor, and said my goodbyes, then ran around the zoo telling everyone that they MUST go to the giraffe encounter.
I'm sure that sales peaked thanks to me.
It was magical beyond all definitions.
It has been over 10 hours and I am
still glowing over my zoo trip.
I miss my babies and will be volunteering at the zoo as soon as I move back to Arizona.
Go to the zoo. Bring an extra four bucks. Feed the giraffes. Experience euphoria. Die happy.
Petting the stingrays was also a fantastic experience.
So bring two more dollars and make it a hay day!
Sunny Weather, Entire Day Outside, Riding Bikes, Animal Encounters, Beautiful Pictures, Cute Hubby, Dinner with BusyBeeLauren & Ted=
