Valentine's Day 2009
So....after running some morning errands, our family had a mega-discussion about how to spend our day.
It was decided that we'd go to the zoo....
I, of course, felt that it was toooooo cold to spend the day at the zoo.
I was quickly outnumbered.
We had a lengthy conversation about going to the zoo, and how Gage did not want to see an "Antemiller".... A What???
Anteater? No. Armadillo? No. "ANTEMILLER!" I think it's something like a cross between an antelope & a caterpiller.... Guess what buddy...chances are--you won't see one!
We dressed, and we headed out.
First----quick run through the car wash...
After that, lunch at Wendy's. (clearly, the focus is not romance here...the focus was: it's lunchtime, and we can run get Wendy's for $15, or eat at the zoo for $45...we chose Wendy's!)
Gage, stop playing with your food.
Oh, those aren't nuggets? They're dinosaurs??? Awwww. Now eat 'em!
After that, across the highway to the zoo!
The gal who thought it was too cold to go to the zoo---she's the one who forgot her jacket/sweater/coat/anything-that-contains-body-heat. Yeah....I'm smart like that. So, lucky for us---all that $$ we saved by not eating lunch at the zoo....well, I spent that & then some at the zoo gift shop buying a sweatshirt that I NEVER would have purchased. You'll see it in pictures....it totally covers my cute red shirt that I wore for V-Day...and seriously---the sweatshirt is the color of grunge. If "gutter-punk" were a color, this sweatshirt is the poster-child for the color "gutter-punk". [on another note...I should send that suggestion to Urban Decay! ...a lovely faded-over-washed-grungey-gray eyeshadow???? anyone? anyone?]
Okay....so we went to the zoo & bought an ugly sweatshirt for $40.
After that, tons of fun!
And so, after a long day at the zoo...our little guy was tuckered out!
Later, I asked him, "What was your favorite part about today?"
[...I usually ask him this question every day when we rock at night. I love hearing his answers...]
Gage said, "Getting blue Gatorade at the zoo."
So, that was the best part about the day for him....
And we didn't see a single Antemiller!
