at the zoo
we went to the zoo. it was fun. all week when we asked devyn what she wanted to see, she told me elephants, tigers, lions, and giraffes. when we actually got to the zoo there weren't any lions. and she really couldn't have cared less about the elephants, tigers, and giraffes. or the bears, rhinos, manatees, or wolves for that matter. all those animals far off in the distance that weren't doing anything but eating or lazing. she didn't particularly care for any of them. but the smaller animals, the ones behind glass instead of bars, she liked them. the penguins, the spiders and snakes and frogs and lizards, the fish. and she also liked the monkeys, who were up and playing. but her favorite (which is also her mommy's favorite and has been for years and years) were the otters. they always look like they're having so much fun, and they were no different on this visit. they swam and played and came right up to the glass and she followed them around and pointed and stood right against the glass and laughed at them when they pushed off and swam away upside-down. we were thinking about getting a pass to the zoo, but we decided she didn't like it that much. but we're thinking she might like one to the florida aquarium, since those are the animals she liked.
