We had some crazy beautiful weather here on Saturday. A high of 40. FORTY. It felt like a heatwave around here. So we took advantage of it and headed to the Minnesota Zoo.
Wyatt had a really good time climbing on things and staring at the other kids. The animals? Just okay. I think maybe he needs to get out more.
On second thought, when we let him out he just runs away from us.
When we caught him, we forced him to look at the animals and like it.
At one point I forgot I was there with other people and took 97 pictures of a tree full of berries.
Eventually I tore myself away and caught up with everyone again. I don’t want to know what they were up to.
I think it was this point I realized I hadn’t even been taking pictures of the animals. I don’t really believe rusty fences are more interesting than tigers. I swear.
I tried to make up for the lack of animals. Look! A tortoise eating lunch.
And an angry red panda!
And a coyote that a guy kept loudly exclaiming were “ky-oats.” Clearly the coyote was unimpressed.
And we totally got a picture of all three of us. We won that day.
Now I must go mourn the fact that we’re supposed to get 8-12 inches of snow tonight and tomorrow. Winter isn’t ever going to end, is it?
