Trip to the Zoo (photo heavy)

As I mentioned a while ago, work has cut my hours. And while that kicks my wallet in the balls, it does give me extra free time, like going to the zoo with my mom. And her four year old nanny charge. For three hours.

 

They have their Halloween decorations out

Which just means there were pumpkins and hay bales scattered throughout. But hey- effort.

Black rhino

Mom: Why do they call it a black rhino when it’s brown?

These hippos are CUDDLING. All three were squeezed into this one corner

This seal was rubbing up against the glass because it thought the woman’s spotty bag was a spotted seal.

When we first arrived, I was tasked by Grace to obtain the baby giraffe for her. Not a problem. Until we made it to the Red Rocks area of the zoo.

All the animals here kept staring at me. LIKE THEY KNEW.

Not the kangaroos. They fell asleep on the job.

So the baby giraffe is a lot bigger than I remembered.

And I was all four strapping the four year old to the roof to fit the giraffe into the car, but apparently some people frown on that. Jerks.

Alas, no giraffe for Grace. I hope she doesn’t hate me too much.

Tucked between a rock and a hard place- specifically, a wooden pallet
