|All of us relaxing after a hot but exciting day at the zoo! The air conditioner was running on high at the restaurant!|
I had my camera with me but decided that I had taken many pictures at zoos and they all seemed to look alike so didn't have my camera in my hand ready for the quick shot. Too bad! We started around and Becci (16 years old at the time) did take lots of pictures. Soon we came to the monkey display. Oddly, we and one zoo worker were the only ones there. He was standing close to the fence observing a monkey who seemed to be showing off a bit. Becci thought he was cute and went up to the fence next to the zoo guy to get some pictures. The rest of us just watched kind of from a distance. Other people started coming with strollers, little children and even some young people in their 20s.
|Becci shortly after the monkey episode watching an ape, who was NOT naughty! Too late I realized I should always keep my camera handy.|
I said, "c'mon you perverts let's see what the apes have to offer!" They argued that THEY were not the perverts in that scenario. I kind of wish I had taken a video of our faces during this whole event. Anyway, we have not forgotten our episode with that naughty monkey!
Somehow I feel like I should add a recipe for Monkey Bread here---or not!
|As I said, I didn't use my camera but this is Becci up close getting a shot of the action of otters at the Aquarium similar to what she was doing at the monkey cage. |
|Not the monkey! JJ poses with a fake ape!|
