And what Bubby wants, Bubby gets (seriously, he’s spoiled rotten)!
We headed out late Saturday morning (bag packed with everything we’d need), left the island, stopped for lunch, then headed for our Birthday Boo Bash at the Zoo!
You might have guessed that our first stop was the “helephants”, and if so, you are absolutely RIGHT! Bubby was in love!
Then on to some horned animals that B and Bug particularly enjoyed, and giraffes, rhinos, and even some warthogs.
We headed to the pumpkin patch for some more pumpkin picking and decorating.
And then some silly play time was in order!
About this time (as anticipated by me, a mother of 6 usually knows best), everyone was getting a little restless, hungry, and thirsty. Time to find a nice spot to pull out some snacks and drinks, and rest a little while.
This looked like a nice place! So we pulled up a bench, I cracked open my bag, and dug out the Del Monte Peaches with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar. And from the looks of things, they were really digging this new flavor!
It was time to take my monkeys to see the zoo’s monkeys! It only seemed natural and the monkeys are my all-time favorite!
And here are just a few of our favorite monkeys! How cute are they? They were all posing for us! I so want a monkey one of these days!
Last stop…lion’s den! I couldn’t help myself! Of course I burst out into song! You knew I would.
the lion sleeps tonight….
a-weem-away, a-weem-away ♫♪
Let them stare, let them laugh, I don’t care! My family and I just like to have fun! And we do!
And much like the mighty lions, my babies looked very tired (and they were starting to act it, OH MY at the whining) so it was time to pack up and head back to the island after a great day at the zoo!
Thanks to my friends at Del Monte and Collective Bias, Bubby’s birthday was a huge success! We had fun, we learned new things, we played hard, we laughed often, and we even found a new favorite snack! Who could ask for anything more?
