What a ZOO!

Don’t know how it is on your neck of the woods, but trying to go to zoo here should be considered an Olympic event. First, there is so much to pack because “just in case” they birds poop on your kid’s clothes, or “just in case” they don’t like the zoo food. Second the LONG drive because there isn’t direct freeway access to there. And then you get there and it’s a ZOO, crowded as can be, and the only happy faces you spot are those of the kids. The heat is unbearable and the adults all wonder the same thing to themselves: “What did I get myself into?”

But things change a bit when the zoo is ALL TO YOURSELF because it’s your company party. Your food is catered, you have ALL the time in the world to encounter with as many animals as you wish and the outdoor fans call your name and your name only. And the best: the face painting

  1. I love going to the zoo to see all the animals! The monkeys are my favorite. They are always doing something funny.

  2. oh, wow, it would be amazing to have the zoo all to yourself with catered food!!! that sounds like a dream. i went to the zoo recently but it was really hot and a bit crowded, ... it was still pretty fun though. i got to feed a giraffe. :)

  3. I used to take my kids to the zoo all the time but we haven't been in ages......LOVE the face paint!

  4. Yes, of course!. My kid love the zoo. Lovely kids yours and so fashion!! ;)

  5. I would love to have the zoo all to myself (well, me and my on my own with all those animals might be a little scary, LOL). Glad everyone had a great time!

  6. Very cute and very good bodyart :-D
