A Day At The Zoo

As much as I love to cook, it is NOT all I love to do. I LOVE living life and all that it has to offer, even outside of the kitchen. πŸ™‚ The other day it was a beautiful day. It was way to nice to spend indoors. Mike and Larry played a round of golf while Lauren and I enjoyed ourselves at the zoo. Both were perfect ways to enjoy the beautiful weather and to spend some quality time with Mother Nature.

There were a lot of animals I would have liked to have seen, but they were not available to see. I loved seeing all the animals we did see though, with one major exception. You all know how much I HATE snakes. I do my best to avoid them at all costs. However, when we were leaving the lion’s den, they had an exhibit of a HUGE python, all curled up. I definitely could have done with seeing him. Needless to say, I DID NOT take a picture of him. But I did take a lot of other pictures of the other animals we saw.

I love this picture of the lioness watching over the lay of the land.

Some of the animals were active, but most of them were just lazing around.

We were hoping this hippo would turn around and give us a big smile, but nope. She was shy, and kept her back to us the whole time.

Catch me if you can.

This lion was just as impressive as the real king of the jungle. It was created all out of Legos – 56, 408 to be exact. Whoever made it did a fantastic job. So creative.

Lauren and I had a very fun day at the zoo. It’s been years since I’ve been to the zoo, but it is always something fun to do. The Denver Zoo features an 84-acre campus in an enchanting urban field station, where 3,000+ wonderful wild animals serve as ambassadors for their wild counterparts all over the world. The Denver Zoo is ranked the 10th best zoo in the nation. Who knew?

As you can see, I love to live life both inside AND outside the kitchen. I make the most out of everyday.

Stay safe and stay well. ‘Til next time.
