Our Day at the Zoo

We had a blast! Animals, caves, yummy food, just time together! Just what we needed after a long stint of daily grind, semi-typical stresses, you know how it goes. A mini stay-cation was fantastic!

The Kookaburra was pretty cute, but didn't do very much. We never even heard the Kookaburra call.

I loved all the pretty parrots.

We both loved this Umbrella Cockatoo. Practically like a cat, this bird cozied right up to us and almost purred with pleasure at having the attention.

  Lorikeets stole the show however, with their vibrant colors and personalities! So friendly, so eager, and almost overwhelming as they swarmed us when we stepped into their habitat, hands outstretched with nectar cups.

Soo Pretty!!!!

Lorikeets seemed to have an obsession

with hair. They were practically yanking David's hair out by the roots to get more of that yummy axe flavor.

And also ears!!! This was hilarious!

 And of course, Kangaroos and caves!!!
This guy here is supposed to be about 6 ft. tall. We got to pet him, but I was afraid of spooking him with the camera sounds while our hands were on him. No need to get a swift kick box from a powerful beast like this ;-)

I thought she was so sweet. Mama and her joey! She was pretty protective so we couldn't get terribly close, but just enough to get a little peek!

 Cave pictures didn't turn out super-awesome, but you get the idea.

I really love caves! Even small show caves like this one.

All in all, a terrific day! I had planned on using whole wheat penne leftover from the night before to make baked chicken penne, but after 5 hours of fun, hubby was sweet to offer dinner out at a Mexican restaurant! I have craved burritos since conception so I was THRILLED!!!!

Stay tuned for the bump update! If you look at the first picture, you can see me showing just a tad.

Enjoy your week!
