my birthday was on a Saturday this year. we had huge plans to work on our to-do list and get our house in order. when we woke up that morning we decided to heck with that. we went to the zoo. we love the knoxville zoo. it isn’t a huge zoo and it is currently being renovated in some areas, but it is a wonderful place. it was a hot day, so a lot of the animals were just lazy.
hogs (2 babies)
elephants (they were the most active we have ever seen them. one of them got in the water and was taking a bath)
giraffe (we didn’t get to feed them this time)
elephants again (construction makes you walk by them again – this was the one taking a bath)
birds (to look at the beaver there is a section closed in and these birds fly all around you. very traumatic when they dive at your head).
turkey (told you it was hot. it was standing in front of the fan).
i got home that night and looked at my to-do list and realized that i didn’t cross anything off my list. my birthday plans were ruined. thank goodness!
