So in the last post it was just pictures of Boy 1 & me at the zoo. (Duhh...) I didn't mean to mislead some of you....we all went to the zoo; I just had to do something to make it fun for Boy 1. I mean he is a teenager and this is a zoo. What teenager in his right mind would want to go to the zoo? (Do you sense the sarcasm?) Anyway taking crazy pictures with Boy 1 did make it fun for him & he even cracked multiple smiles. The other kids wanted to join in on the crazy pictures, but I had to tell them this was 'special' for Boy 1 & they all got it.
My beautiful little butterfly!
This little guy is the reason Girl is going to ask Santa for a tarantula for Christmas. THANKS A LOT zoo lady!
If you ever find yourself in San Antonio with an extra day on your hands and you have already done all the other touristy things (Alamo, riverwalk, museums and so on) then the zoo is the place to go! We had a great time and even enjoyed the zoo more than we enjoyed (gasp) Sea World. The San Antonio Zoo
is open every day of the year from 9-5. The cost is $10 per adult and $8 for kids ages 3-11. They offer a military discount (I always love a military discount!) of $1 off per ticket. They also have a $1 off coupon on their website
for you non military folks.
So this was the best part of the zoo and we all had a ton of fun even though we were all freaked out a little. I know certain friends of mine are going to have a so much fun with this, go ahead, it is a free for all....call me "Bird lady" or call me OLD, I'm ready. We fed parrots nectar. There. I said it and I did it. Laugh all you want. I love you too. (And I'm posting LOTS of pictures of our bird experience.)
It started off all nice and innocent. One little bird taking the lid off Boy 3's nectar.
And then there were three.....
They just kept coming...notice the one on his head? Boy 3 is starting to freak out a little....
OK...better, he is off his head & moved to his hand.
This is the only picture of I got of Girl before she BOLTED!! Yes, that is a tear rolling down her cheek.
They loved Hubby...
and he was so nonchalant about it - just call him the 'bird whisperer'!
It was like Boy 2 had been feeding birds his whole life. (Check out the guy in the background with his head in the trash.)
This is nothin'!
I'm very thankful Boy 2 is NOT asking for birds for Christmas.
Boy 1 stuck around about as long as Girl did. He couldn't stand it!
And then there was me.....these little guys LOVED me. (This is for you Staci.)
God help me!!
Having a bird walk around on your head and pulling your hair is a bit freaky!!
He loved my sunglasses & my scalp!
Right before this picture I had FIVE birds on me.
Starting to breath a little easier....
but totally have the giggles.
Just call me bird lady.
