Last week Steven was lucky enough to get off work a couple of days early after working storm duty in Russellville. I picked him up in Batesville on Wednesday. On the way home he announced that he had already made plans for us for Thursday – a trip to the zoo! We hadn’t had a date in forever, so I was pretty darn excited.
We had planned to get up early on Thursday and leave the house by 8, so that we could hopefully get to Memphis, enjoy the zoo, and leave before the hottest part of the day. That didn’t happen.
But wait. Wasn’t it almost 100 degrees on Thursday?
Yes. Yes it was. I believe the high was actually 95. When we left the zoo and got in the car, we heard on the radio that the heat index was 107. That hadn’t stopped us though! We love the zoo.
I think our favorite exhibit was the new Birds & Bees exhibit. It is awesome! It’s pretty much a big, caged garden with LOTS of birds flying around. They let you get right up next to them. One of them even flew by Steven and hit his stomach with its wings! It’s a seasonal exhibit though – only there until Labor Day – so go see it!
The polar bears are also a favorite of ours. We love to see the polar bear feeding. They were very playful that day.
Yep, we love the zoo.
