He got a random middle of the week day off so we decided to do it early. (:
We started out the day with errands (we finally have a joint checking account!) and then getting the car cleaned. We took it to a car wash that drives your car for you! Lol. All the car washes I have been too, you drive the car through it. In this car wash you hook your car on something and put the car in neutral and go. he he.
After that we were off to Birmingham! I had no idea what we were doing, Martin kept it a surprise the whole time! (:
I was like a giddy 6-year old! He He.
Peacocks were just walking around like no big deal.
Hey.. peacock...sorry but he is taken. (;
We saw pretty swans but they were so far away.
There were the cutest little owls too!!!
I have no idea what kind of bird that was.... but it got really close to us.
There were tons and tons of different birds all throughout the zoo!!! (:
I was a little nervous to go see the alligator but he was pretty much sleeping. Martin hollered at him to wake him up though! haha
Martin's favorite part was the reptile section. He is not a fan of snakes AT ALL (its pretty much his biggest fear) but when they are behind glass he is okay.
|this little guy looked just like a rock. it took us forever to find him.|
We look down at the description and it is a 'common kingsnake' native in Alabama! I started laughing so hard when Martin tells me that he sees these snakes at work all the time! He he. He continued to play with it to "get to know him better" since he will see them again. hehe.
After the reptiles creeped me out enough we headed to the Africa section of the zoo.
Okay.. I fell in love with this little guy! He is a red panda or something like that. He was so fast I could barely get a picture but he was too stinking cuddly!
Okay this next guy is amazing! Martin says he looks like a little Don King! Lol. But I think he looks like a mini grandpa monkey to a land of fairies or something. If I could take home one pet it would be THIS monkey!
The last thing we did before we left was take a train ride throughout the whole zoo. It was a lot of fun! (:
My husband planned such a wonderful birthday celebration for me. We were just amazed by all of God's creations. A few times Martin said "God made this! Like He thought about this animal and created all the details." I love my husband because as I was taking picture of all the cuteness of the animal, Martin was reading all the facts about it. hehe.
I am a firm believer in acting like a kid and staying youthful! I will be 25 in a few days and I can still have a complete blast at a zoo!!!! (:
Take a moment to marvel at God's creations and laugh like a kid!
young at heart and love. - Monica
