Greyson does NOT like rhinos...

As he *bluntly* announced today at the zoo.

Everything else, though! Eee! What fun. LOL

I am completely bummed because Brookfield Zoo had to go and take out the friggin' FROG statue before you get to the North gate... and so, um, we *totally* did NOT meet up with the people we were supposed to meet up with. Because seriously, NO FROG.

Oh. And the fact that we were running a bit late and I couldn't find where the hell I wrote down their cell numbers. *smack*

But! We had a great time with Greyson's friend Hunter, and his mom & grandma (who was visiting from NY). I think I got more sun today than I have almost all summer... and I LOVED every minute of it.

Boo hissssss at the STILL long lines at the Stingray Bay... I didn't get to touch the little bastards AGAIN this year, because, well... 45 minutes to wait in line? Umm, I don't think so. Not with a 2-year-old.

I thoroughly scared my husband by informing him that the Wolf Spider that they had displayed in the Swamp exhibit... yeah. They live in our yard, too. He has now proclaimed that he is NOT mowing the lawn ANYMORE. Big baby.

Anyways, a great time was had by all (well, except for the spider reveal, oh! And the fact that we also have stick bugs... ROFL!), and this year, Greyson didn't scream when the waves came crashing down in The Living Coast! Hooray! We was SO enamored with every single underwater creature... he is going to have a BLAST when we take him to Shedd next month (September 15th? Anybody? It's a FREE day!)...

What did YOU do today? Anything fun?!?

Im bummed we didnt meet up either. We were there all day too, so we literally had to just miss one another. That sucks!
But it was a beautiful day at the zoo.
