There has been lots of planning and choosing and spray painting and gluing and picture taking and... it was time for a break.
The obvious getaway... The Zoo.
We have been planning to do this for months... like 4 of them (were children). I was super excited and sang the "Were going to the zoo" song on a regular basis for the week before. Ill admit it, the night before I had my grumpy pants on. In a big way. I was just pulling into my driveway from Matts house when he called. "Summer Sausage or Turkey Breast?" In yet another attempt to please his bridezilla Matty was up at 1 in the morning making our lunches for the next day. Heart melts, grumpy pants fly off, zoo-excitement returns.
We get to the Zoo... and notice that all of Calgary had decided to join us there. It was CRAZY BUSY.
When you first walk into the Zoo there is the "Jurassic" area on one side and the "Canadian" area on the other. As a child we would always run past those to get to Africa, Australia ect. Matt and I did the same thing. And just like when I was a child we ended on the Canadian section. And Im not sure why. Its kinda lame. They have an exhibit of "ground squirrels". Really were going to devote room to a gopher? No, the gopher needs to be shot. The bear was alright... but Waterton provides a better view.
I had set some very high hopes for the Zoo. Extremely high. And they were surpasses - very rare. It was so fun to get away for the day and not HAVE to do one thing. It has been a weird summer... less summery more weddingy. I am happy about that, but it was nice to switch it up for a day.
Also, we are getting married in 11 days. Were almost to the single digits people!!
