mom & leyton picked me up about 10:30, and we headed to the zoo. i didn't wear a coat, just a sweatshirt, and it worked out okay, but the first 1/2 hour or so was windy & chilly! was glad leyton wore his hat!
the zoo has been doing renovations, and this year opened a new rainforest exhibit area. it's pretty neat, but there's a giant spider somewhere that keeps hiding!
no, that's not the giant spider...; )
leyton mostly was happy riding the train & the carousel. the animals were out & lively during the train ride, but they all pretty much hid after that - we didn't get to see the tiger or the bears up close! *pout* i did get a nice photo of the spotted leopard. : )
when we saw the black swan, i said, "i hope it's not insane like the one in the movie!" LOL
leyton enjoyed the non-drama llamas : )
watch out, this one bites!!
these guys don't bite, they are sweet!
speaking of sweet... : )
the plane! the plane!!
photo by leyton. he will be 4 in 2 weeks. this is an awesome shot! : )
seriously so much fun!! we were only there for about an hour, too. heh. after that we all went to a tastefully simple open house & had some yummy, yummy samples! mom & i both ordered about $30 worth of stuff. and we got the door prize - chip clip for me & gripper thing to help open jars & such for mom. and leyton...
then we went to happy joe's for lunch - they have a mac & cheese pizza!? interesting...!
leyton enjoyed the train around the restaurant. : ) and after we ate, leyton & i went down to the play area & played air hockey, skee ball, and some other things. the guy workin' the prize counter was cute, and very nice - leyton had like 44 tickets, and he wanted a sucker that was like 70 tickets, but dude gave it to him anyway. : )
and after all THAT fun, we went to the movies & saw Hop, which we all really enjoyed. so cute! andrea said it'd gotten some not-so-good reviews, but mom, leyton & i say "ears up" on this one.
they dropped me at home around 6 & i have been watching Sliders on hulu ever since. lol i'd planned to watch Chuck or GH or CSI (or all of those! LOL) but then hulu had a section titled 1996, and i wondered what was there - turns out it was the year of X Files, News Radio, and Sliders. : ) (Hulu just told me i've been watching for 3 hours, and asked if i needed a break! LOL)
i haven't had a chance to get to the grocery store, and bret had my car, so around 8:30 i decided i really wanted some sushi. we have this awesome food delivery service called good2go, so i submitted an order for sushi & salmon from osaka. an hour later, dinner was served! : )
now, i am thinking one more episode of sliders & then sleep! all the fresh air was awesome, but made me sleepy!
what'd you get up to today?
