Life is a ZOO!!!

Today I woke up and it was like any other day....

Then my bestest friend EVER called me and said that she and her family were on their way to LR! They were spending the day here and going to the zoo! I, who didn't have any pressing appointments (that's almost laughable! ha!) was so excited to spend that time with them!

And I have to say, I have not been to a zoo since I was a little kid, so I think I was more excited than Eden!! ha!

We started off on the carousel and Eden was having a BLAST!

But then she was definitely NOT excited to get off the carousel... this was her reaction afterwords (she totally wanted another go!)

Here are some of the animals that we saw! I know that LR zoo is not nearly as fancy as some, but I was still impressed! I seriously felt like 10 year old all over again!

Here is an orangatang... I swear it looked up and smiled for me :). Probably because I kept telling it how pretty it's hair was, and that I wished my hair was that color! ha! No girl, human or ape, and resist a good hair compliment...

This was the biggest, nastiest thing I have ever seen... I mean, who knew orangatangs could have DREADLOCKS?!?! ha!

These birds were my favorite! I was seriously like an inch away from them and they just kept staring at me and my camera. I think we became good friends... we just had a connection, what can I say? I stayed around them for probably 15 minutes just taking pictures and getting right in their faces... and they didn't mind a bit! So fun!

Say Cheese! ha!

Me and Eden! Even without her nap, she was such a trooper! We all had so much fun!

After the zoo, Andrew, Whitney, and Eden came over for a bit to hang out with Tyler. Then we went to eat pizza! It was such a fun day that started out so normal! I'm so glad they called me to join them... it's always such a treat to spend my day with close friends! :)
