A day at the zoo!

We went to Lowry Park Zoo today! The hellion, Nini, Gigi, Papa and I spent a few hours walking around looking at all the animals. Hellion of course didn't want to walk and didn't want to be in his stroller. So Gigi and Nini spent a lot of time holding him, I refused to. I am such a mean mommy. We saw all the Florida animals. He petted the stingrays and absolutely loved the manatees and turtles and other reptiles/amphibians. He got to feed a giraffe, which was a fun experience for him. He got to see a kangaroo with a baby in her pouch. All you could see were the tail and one of its feet sticking out. Hellion was fascinated and didn't want to leave. He also had his first ice cream cone today. Gigi made the mistake of offering him a bite of hers. Needless to say she never got it back. All in all it was a pretty good day. We got to see lots of animals and got some great pictures.

I live in a neighborhood with an association and stupid rules. They are a bunch of small minded idiots with nothing better to do than go around looking for things to complain about. Apparently when they created the list of rules for our neighborhood there were a lot of work trucks here because the neighborhood was still under construction. One of their stupid rules is no trucks parked in the driveway. Ok, fine. What would you like my brother and I to do with our trucks then. We can't stick them in the garage because they don't fit. We can't park them in the street or anywhere else in the neighborhood so what would you like us to do exactly?! Seriously, is this the best thing you could come up with. There are a zillion rules being broken in this neighborhood daily and you are gonna harp on an outdated one. Why don't you spend your spare time finding the hoodlums that wreck peoples mailboxes every week. Or the ones that litter in the ponds. Go find something worthwhile to bitch about and leave us the hell alone! I am gonna start parking at the park in the neighborhood. Don't think we have any rules about that. Meh!
