Where The Wild Things Are

On Saturday, Lobster and I had our house inspection and I'm relieved to say that it came back great. There were only some minor issues that we are having the seller's address before we close on the house. Next up is the appraisal on Tuesday and we are praying for a good outcome there as well.

With all this buying our first house business, it goes without saying that Lobster and I have been pretty stressed lately. I thought that we both needed a fun day where we got out and got our minds off of everything. I decided to take Lobster on a surprise date after our inspection. It was a gorgeous day and I wanted us to be able to enjoy the beautiful spring weather, so I took Lobster to the Fort Worth Zoo.

I love the zoo and I hadn't been in years. Lobster and I talked about going for a year now, but never made the time. It was so much fun! Of course, Lobster laughed at me the whole time because I tend to talk to the animals. I don't know why, but I do it to everything. Even the birds outside in my backyard or the evil Fat Squirrel who keeps digging up my garden to bury his nuts. So you can imagine how excited I was to talk to the tigers and the gorillas and the silly little lemurs.

I had lots of fun with my new camera too. Here are some of my favorite shots from the day:

Don't you just love that gorilla's face? What a happy gorilla! Love it!

The Ft Worth Zoo is probably my favorite place in the world! The last time I went I brought my video camera and went t alittle crazy. The best is when they wash the elephants, those suckas are crazy smart!
Also, we're doing a blogger meet up on April 11th. I think I may have already told ya, but if your interested in getting on the email or spreading the word email me at carissajade@gmail.com! Hope to hear from you!

Going to the zoo is so much fun! And I understand the urge to talk to the animals, people do it with their pets all the time ha ha.
Hope the house buying continues so go smoothly :)

Fun! I loved the FW Zoo. I used to go there and the Botanic Gardens all the time in law school.
