We had a holiday today... and Jacqui and her boytoy Russell came to visit, so we decided to go to the Calgary Zoo. I had a lot of fun, and i think that everyone else had a pretty good time too, even with the place being packed!
We saw almost all the animals (except the gorilla's) starting with the hippos.
My blog is mostly for Ang and her family to keep in touch.. this picture of Dad is for you guys in Hawaii.
The African building housed the hippo's, warthogs, some snakes and the giraffes
Here are just a few pics of the animals we saw.. we def saw more than this, i had forgotten just how good the calgary zoo is.
the Lizard, piranha and kangaroo were all in the Australia n part.. the temperature in there was hot and it smelled really bad and made us all pretty sweaty. That is now what i imagine Australia to be like.
Of course we made our way into what i remember from my childhood as "the butterfly room" where the temperature was also hot and humid. Contrary to what Jamie had said, they still had all the butterflies flying around in the room about our heads.
We were all mesmerized by the baby elephant... Mom said that it reminded her of Tyken cause it was SO cute.
We made our way over the wobbly bridge that wiggles and wobbles as good as i remember it.. and we wandered through the dinosaur part.
We made our way everywhere.. even the Canadian wildlands where we saw moose, grizzly bears etc... we got to go for a little ride.. i discovered that they are pretty dangerous
Above is us just hanging out with the porcupines.
It was a really fun day with the whole family, we got home and Dad let us all have his new favorite treat: freezies.. he probably ate like 3.
Its always fun to have Jacqui visit.. and i liked meeting Russell. We finished off the day with a barbeque, and brownies and ice cream and some TLC watching. Tomorrow its back to work for everyone, i got a job at Black and Lee tuxedo's and suit rentals, which is totally new to me. I was feeling a little out of element coming home, but after a good breakdown sunday night and finishing up my vision board tonight, I think that i'm back feeling good and excited to do all sorts of things over the next couple weeks, months etc.
COME VISIT AGAIN SOON JACQUI!
