Trip to the zoo.

The day started early as the zoo is one hour away from home and the day was supposed to be hot. We arrived to the zoo at 10.15 and someone decided to study the zoo map before to go anywhere:

We decided to visit a little bit and take a tour on the little train zoo early (to beat the crowd).

Who wants 3 turtles?

Fun in the train:

Yes they are cute but we came for that:

Emma tried to make new friend:
Steb took a little break with his grandma (aren't they two beautiful beasts?) :

Who is watching who?Then we stopped by the petting zoo:
A goat wanted a piece of Steb
And my mom almost got kissed (or eaten ) We found a new rare specie: the Estebanus sleepinus (who couldn't handle the excitment anymore.)

We almost witnessed some live action porn between two giraffes as papa giraffe was very happy to see mama giraffe if you see what I mean ... but I guess, they remembered there were kids around and waited for some night intimacy to do what they have to do That park is working for the reproduction of the rare and endangered species so they will be very happy to have babies.

The day didn't finish as well as it started as I twisted my ankle really bad at the front of the zoo store (close to the exit). I was really in pain but nothing bad happened and I was able to take another trip in the train and drive all the way home. Chuy thinks that my ankle was not injured because we had walked a lot and the muscle was warm. I took it easy today and I can walk with no pain !!! Yeah !!!!!!

For the ones who don't care at all about our wild zoo adventures, here is my progress(from tuesday night as I didn't stitch yesterday):
