So, Rio Tinto did a work night at the zoo this year. Because I work at Rio Tinto, and Eric works at Kennecott - owend by Rio Tinto, we both got a ticket to take five people (plus us) to the zoo - equaling TEN extra people. SWEET. We invited a bunch of family and friends and had SO much fun.
They supplied dinner and made all concessions free. DELICIOUS. It was wonderful. The zoo will never be the same. They also gave all the kids t-shirts and hats, and all the adults hats or visors.
Now for picture overload. I don't have a picture of the whole group OR all the dang food. Darn it.
We got this cart to store all the drinks we had. It was very worthwhile.
Sally, the camel, has two humps.
My favorite animal - the TIGER. My favorite tiger: white bengal tiger - don't get to see those a lot.
Look at the paws on that thing.
This ram kept posing for me. It was hilarious.
Giraffe licking this pole.
We went to the bird show - which was so cool! This bird untied two different signs in the show.
A bald eagle.
I remember when we had a bald eagle nest in our backyard as kid. It was awesome.
They kept releasing tons of birds - very cool indeed.
This chicken was shaking its tail feathers!
Addi and Kade both made donations to the bird show - the birds takes all the donations and puts them in the box.
The three butterfly ladies. They wouldn't let me paint my face with Add, but later in the night, there were no kids waiting, so I got mine done to match Add, and Sally joined.
Add is going to be a model - no doubt. :)
And that was our FUN trip at the zoo - wish they did this more often!
Thanks to all those who came!
