Ry wanted to go to the Buffalo Zoo today. Apparently, he wasn't alone in this desire--I think the majority of Buffalo had the same idea as he did. (It was $1 day.) When we first pulled up and saw the crowds, I was not happy. Ryan told me to smile for the camera, but I gave him this face instead:
P.S. I look so lovely because we also went running at the park near the zoo.
Ryan thought that my grumpiness was so humorous that he decided to try it out:
Once we got inside, it was kinda fun--the people were as interesting to watch as the animals. $1 Day at the zoo attracts an interesting demographic. (And hey, we were among them.) I've never seen so many tattoos, crying children, and low-rise pants in all my life.
This morning, I finished reading the book The Life of Pi, which is about the son of a zookeeper and his adventures with animals, so it was great timing for me to go to the zoo. I kept thinking about scenes from the book as I peered into the cages.
The polar bear cheered me up, as did the lion...
It was a fun outing. Ry and I had been bickering a bit all weekend, so I'm glad that he still invited me to go with him. He's a pretty good sport for putting up with me when I am grumpy.
