trip to the zoo

No, we are not in the tribe yet. This is a monkey in the zoo. My kids have never been, so my mom thought that they were completely deprived of a normal childhood experience and that if she didn't take them immediately they would need serious psychological help. I agreed to go until I found out that the zoo in Montgomery now costs $10 for adults and $7 for kids!!! Is it just me or is that outrageous for a zoo, especially the Montgomery zoo. But, my mom insisted on taking them and said she would pay, and fearing that she would call social services on me, I once again got on board. It was a lot of fun, in spite of the ever- loving indescribable heat. I mean this is what the temp in our van said when we got back in.
Our van does have a tendency to exaggerate the temp sometimes, but this time I believed it! It was HOT!!! I did learn a very important lesson about tribal wives on this outing which is why I am blogging about it...they cannot have bangs!(at least this tribal wife cannot) My first order of business is to grow my bangs out. I do not want to live my life with sweaty goopy bangs plastered to my forehead! I also learned another important lesson about my tribal husband...he is very immature. This picture he took is proof. OK, so maybe I already knew that. And maybe it is one of the reasons I married him. Because let's just get honest. That is pretty funny. You know you laughed!


  1. "laughed out loud" for real


  2. I knew you would! You are as mature as JM!

  3. Look what we did in Costa Rica... muahaha. Our youth boys were making jokes left and right.
