Here are Bella and a little friend watching what I'm pretty sure was two screwing turtles. But since they have a very brief attention span, I don't think they saw more than a thrust or two, so it was probably just confusing rather than scarring.
I hadn't been to the zoo (the "new zoo" as Brent calls it) in a long time and I was pleasantly surprised to find a winter dolphin show (it's enclosed!), a food court (not just Dairy Queen!), and a Caribou (praise the lord!). But the rest was pretty much the same. It is peak mating season for the snow monkeys (according to the placquard), which means their butts are as red as they get. Why aren't they advertising this?! Instead we hear about new dolphins. Lame. MAXIMUM. BUTT. REDNESS. The crowds should be pouring in.
We rode the monorail, because we deemed it too cold outside to walk around, since it was only 25 degrees. I know. Hilarious.
Since our trip to the zoo, we have celebrated the big 2 birthday. Bella got a Curious George quilt, which she was surprisingly excited about, and a vacuum, which she managed to pinch herself with in the first 12 seconds and now whenever she plays with it she has to describe how it pinched her right HERE and how she CRIED. But did I mention it is a working vacuum? So once we are over the pinch-trauma hurdle, we are going to have the most enthusaistically and randomly cleaned carpets in town. Yay!
