What a Surprise

Yesterday, I finally FINALLY took my boys to the zoo.  My youngest has been asking and asking to go since we haven't been for at least 2 years.  Every time he asks, it's either the middle of summer and sweltering; raining for the next 5 days; or, some project needs to be finished or class needs to be attended.

Last weekend, Charger asked again to go, and we are having WONDERFUL weather, it's actually not raining (although it tried to yesterday morning), and the pending project wasn't more important than the zoo this time.

Right before we walked out the door, I asked Charger if he wanted me to bring the camera.  Sometimes, I love to document what we're doing, but other times the boys would rather the camera just stay home (and sometimes I do too).  Charger wanted me to take it with us this time.

I AM SO GLAD HE DID!!! Look what came strolling down the feeder to the highway as we drove to the zoo...

Yep, the Rodeo has come to town!

  1. That is very cool to see! They use to camp for the night when we had to go over the freeway just to get to the feeder. (remember that?) They would camp out in the big triangle of open land, with cars whizzing by at 70 mph. Yep, just like the old days.

    I'm glad you got to see it. Does Charger want to go to the rodeo now?
