Trip To The Zoo

Saturday was the day that the technology team at Nathan’s workplace took everyone to the zoo!

I wondered if it would actually happen because it coincided with the “great Tennessee gas panic” and we only had 100 miles left in the van. I got up early on Saturday and found gas and only had to wait behind one person.



Safely fueled, we made our way to the zoo. We brought our umbrellas because we heard it was supposed to rain on and off through the day. Sure enough. It rained. And rained. And rained some more. We walked over to the barn to see the cows while we waited for the rain to let up a bit.



Later the kids had their faces painted.



Because of the rain, we didn’t stay too long after they fed us lunch. We made our way to the reptile building. We looked at lots of disgusting snakes, spiders, and other critters.

I’m pretty sure I took a nap when we got home. 🙂 That’s what rainy Saturdays are for, right?
