So, I FINALLY got Ammon to download all of the pictures from Sunday onto my computer. He got a little camera happy, and 121 photos later, I think I have a couple to share with you =). Nothing happened on Saturday, because I was busy not trying to fail my summer classes, so don't think you're missing out on anything fun or amusing. You aren't.
So, this is Sunday in pictures:
We started at IHOP. Yup, that's right. I find it super-delicious. AND it just so happens that they have a guy who comes and does balloon animals on the weekends. Double awesome!
And 10am is never too early for a Sundae on your birthday. Especially when you're wearing a bunny balloon hat.
We went specifically to see these beautiful elephants in the new Asian Elephants exhibit, and I am a HUGE fan! The Denver Zoo has definitely been putting some time and effort into improving their animal habitats.
The lioness found me boring. I'm trying not to take it personally.
This was a momma and baby Leopard. The baby is only 10 weeks old! Such a cutie
Yup, you are seeing a Tiger on a fence. We learned they can make a 15 foot vertical jump, and a 30 foot leap! Thank goodness for 40 foot wide moats, y'all.
This is the size of an average polar bear. Yikes.
They had a log for kids to crawl through. Apparently if you're 27, you're still a kid, because I thought it was awesome.
This is Burt the Hippo. He's the oldest hippo in known history, he turns 56 this year. The average life expectancy of a hippo is 49 years in captivity. AND he has 30 kids. Burt's a stud-muffin.
So of course, Ammon decided that Burt and I needed to be best friends.
After a couple of hours at the zoo, we got hot. We headed down to the river to cool off and play bubble shoot on our phones.
Finally, we met up with the parents for dinner, and presents. They were amused by the headgear, and insisted I put it back on.
A new thermos and grill/griddle!
So there you have it, our Sunday in pictures. I wish you could have come along with us, it really was a ton of fun. Did you guys do anything special over the weekend? Have plans for the 4th?
