Put Me in the Zoo

What an exciting, tiring, wonderful day we had.  This morning we loaded up all the blessings and headed to a field trip at the zoo.  I was having flashbacks to our recent Old Salem trip as we drove to Asheboro this morning in the rain, but about  10 minutes after we arrived it stopped and all was well. I’ll share a few highlights.

First we saw one of my favorite zoo exhibits, the sea lions.  Your almost guaranteed to get a good viewing of them.

geckoYep, we found him in the Food Junction just crawling around.  Is he just a native gecko thingy, or did he escape from an exhibit?   Your guess is as good as mine, but it sure didn’t keep B2 from relocating him to a safer place.

And now for our BIG announcement

I am excited to share that B2 finally saved up enough money for his pet fish.  So, I introduce to you our new female Beta Fish named Violet.

Whew, now I’m retiring for the night and I hope everyone has a great weekend.
