Tori has now declared that she will never live here.
Saturday morning AKA Saturday afternoon, Tori told me to wake up or they were going to eat breakfast without me. When she told me that I didn't really have to get up, I simply said, "Hello, I'm not missing out on food..." Umm. SERIOUSLY. just kidding, but I really like IHOP, okay?
So we ate our late breakfast and then met Sarah's friend, Shawn, to go to the zoo. You guys. I have never driven here. I know...it's pathetic. But somehow, I played navigator really well. I found the zoo that we ended up at, and even the one we didn't even want to go to! I'm impressive. Shrug.
We went to this thing called Wild Animal Safari. You can either ride through on a bus (ew) or drive yourself. We picked the obvious choice. So off we went with our animal feed. At least, me and Sarah did. We were the only ones who wanted to feed the animals. (We're adventurous.) The animals on the drive-thru part were deer, cows, sheep, llamas, emu, pigs, bulls, donkeys, zebras, and zedonks. Things like that. It's super fun and also slightly terrifying.
INCREDIBLE/FUNNY THINGS THAT HAPPENED:
1. Sarah's entire bag of feed was stolen out of her lap by a big deer thing that stuck his head in the car. He then proceeded to eat the entire thing, bag and all.
2. At one point Tori was hanging out of the sunroof. While I had my back to my window, yelling at her, an emu stuck his head in. So scary. They look like bird dinosaurs.
3. There was a point where a lot, A LOT, of donkeys surrounded the car. Two were poking their heads in Sarah's window, and two in mine. I was getting pretty scared, so I told Sarah to start driving. The donkeys on my side started running with the car, right beside the car. I have not laughed so hard in a long time.
It might not sound like a big deal, but when you have gigantic heads, with really toothy grins, being shoved in your face...it's pretty scary. But also really fun and neat! :)
p.s. the best part of all was when we did the walk-thru part and i was oh so close to four baby piglets. i have never been more in love. (sorry, josh! just kidding, they are totally a close second.) when josh and i go back, and he sees them...he will not be able to resist getting us a piglet someday.
p.s.s. i really wish i had more pictures to share! i'm working on acquiring a really wonderful camera.
