Climb on the animals …

Yesterday I went to the zoo with Jacob’s class.  I helped herd a group of little boys around the exhibits.  This is not something for the faint of heart.  

Little boys kind of act like monkeys at the zoo.  They run, jump and climb on any and every thing.  It was fun, but I was in serious need of a Route 44 about 2:00 in the afternoon.  Whew, that wore me out!

We did contain the boys … for about 15 seconds … in the ground hog exhibit. 

 But boys will be boys …

I’m pretty sure the girls didn’t take any pictures like the one above!  And why do boys feel the need to make weird noises with their skin?  I’m pretty sure we’d lost control at about this time.
My two favorite sights at the zoo were:

1.  The monkey who looked like his mom packed him a Lunchable:

Can you see the plastic box?  I thought it was hilarious.

And my all time fave was this guy:

I mean SERIOUSLY, I was telling boys to get out of trees, stop jumping off benches, get off other people’s backs, etc. … and this guy was just all laid back and relaxed.  He stayed posed like that forever.  I loved him.  I wanted to be him!

Lucky for me, the bus did not have room for the chaperone moms so trust me … on the car ride home … the QUIET car, with air conditioning …. I looked like this picture.  I just sat there.  Without moving.  Almost daring someone to break my trance.

But I digress.

We had a good  time.

Really we did.
I enjoyed hanging out with him:

And a whole bus load of his friends!

Except I wasn’t on the bus!  Whoo hoo!!
