our memorial day weekend was insane! josh had 2 weddings & an engagement session. i really wanted to go to our favorite memorial day weekend outing-members night at the zoo. he arranged things so we could make it-he’s nice like that ;) so, we rolled on into the zoo and were greeted by this:
now, i know i may offend a-lot of you when i say this, but . . . this . . . this gives me the hebbee-jebbees. seriously! they promote it as “take a dip in the nile.” hmmm, if i was taking a dip with my friends, maybe? but, taking a dip in the nile with just anyone who has a zoo membership, that i just can’t do. do you know what is floating in that water? swine flu, urine, feces. the latter two are almost a definite.
look at how confused miller is by the entire scene . . .
then, onto miller's favorite, the "arraffes" or giraffes.
after a little family portrait, we headed to the rides. we may be those mean parents who take their kids to members night and do not let them take a dip in the nile, but, we did let them ride this crazy contraption:there were no posted restrictions on height or age, so we figured it was safe. after waiting in line forever and watching a little girl leave kicking and screaming from fear, their ride went a little like this:
i think we made up for it. and, we didn't contract the plague.
