Lots of stress around the Starnes household lately. Our zoo membership expires in 5 days. To renew or not to renew? Risk losing money if we move sooner than expecting? But, wouldn't that be an easy pill to swallow.....finally get to move.....and we're out $85. I do hate to lose money, though.
My friend, Josie, suggested that as soon as I start renewing memberships and living life normally, our house will sell. I think I'm going to do it! And, besides, you know we'll have our money's worth by week 3. For real.
During the 3,426 visits to the Denver Zoo since moving here (slight exaggeration), I have never entered the Tropical Discovery building. No strollers allowed. And, limits like these rule my life right now.
So, if we're with Blake, he takes Carter in and I cruise with the toddlers. The sea lions are quite lively and just a quick walk nearby. During this visit, I ventured in and couldn't have been more impressed. It's a tropical rainforest man made indoors......amazing construction.....beautiful vegetation.....tons of reptiles and one of my favorites....the Komodo Dragons.
Lovely lizards, too. Just look at that beauty. (Not you, Kelly. Too much like an iguana.)
The geese run the zoo, so we walk around them, rather than them moving for us.
Could it be? All 3 looking and smiling? If Jack's hair wasn't slicked down due to static and if Lainey didn't have a huge bruise on her forehead, it might just be a favorite. Still pretty darn cute, though.
Lainey's new eye-catching trick that she did several times during this zoo trip and once since then, is jumping off this enormous ledge. It must be 2.5 inches off the ground and the set up is pretty dramatic........we have to count down......lots of anticipation.......she jumps!......and giggles......and claps.......and there are no less than a dozen people at any time watching this little show of hers.
Busted. Runaway Laine.
