Ashley, David, and I were all getting cabin fever, so we decided to head into the city yesterday. Despite the hot temps, we visited the local zoo and did a little school shopping!
This little zoo has been around for as long as I can remember. (Although under a different name and I suppose owner.) The last time we visited, was on a Preschool Field trip when Ashley was 3. (David has never been.)
David going in the entrance...
We were greeted by a beautiful parrot!
The giraffe had no interest in being seen, he was too busy licking the barn!
Now how do these turtles rest in this position??? I was impressed! LOL!
As for the rest of the animals....we arrived at the Zoo around noon, and guess what time the animals must take their naps???....around noon! Or maybe the heat was just getting to them! It was pretty tough! Anyway, the remainder of the tour was spent watching the animals sleep! :)
The King of the Jungle, Himself...in royal slumber....
The bear resting his head on the side of his pool!
The white tiger was awake, but he wasn't a happy camper!
Even though the animals were "not very active," we did enjoy our visit. The zoo is small and quaint, and the animals were beautiful!
As we were cooling down in the gift shop and browsing, a woman and her daughter came through, frantic!!! They were right behind us on the tour, and she seemed calm and okay when we were outside. .....The lady and her daughter had gone to the bathroom, and when they walked in, there was a snake inside! She told the gift shop attendant, who didn't seem phased at all....and replied, "Well, it is a zoo!" Time for me to go!
The kids and I did a little school shopping and thrifting after!
I found the starfish at the Goodwill for $1.09. The zoo gift shop had one identical for $6.
We went to Marshall's, to look for bookbags and shoes. Ashley and David did find a pair of shoes each, ......popular name brands, marked at half the suggested retail! WooooHoooo!
They were having a huge storewide clearance sale, and I treated myself to this decorative bird box....
Not sure it will stay here, but it works for now! :)
And my super find for the day....A Kasper Sunday suit, retail price $240.00, for only $29.99!
And another Big Lots deal.... a black and white damask pillow!
Here's hoping the summer temps are not too hard on you!
See you tomorrow for Pearl's Unbirthday Party! ~Rhonda
