Because we’ve been back for two days and I still haven’t written about it (my brain, it is not cooperating with me these days), here are some pictures.
Near the entrance to the NC Zoo, there are these enormous life-size statues of elephants. We stopped to take some pictures. My mom saw this photo, and thought it was a real elephant, and she fuh-REAKED out. “Where’s the WALL?!! It could’ve KILLED her!!” Um, no, Mom. I’m pretty sure it’s not going anywhere.
Although if the elephants were real, it would’ve made this moment with my brother all the more awesome.
He’s hilarious. (We were trying to get Catie to agree to sit on the elephant’s trunk for a photo. She refused.)
As for inside the zoo…
The flamingo exhibit was hands-down Catie’s favorite. She started asking for them the minute we got there, and she was so excited when we finally found them. She’s normally more of a giraffe/zebra fan, I’m not sure why the sudden obsession with flamingos? Maybe because they’re pink?
And then, of course, the obligatory “we’re going to take some damn family pictures before we leave here.”
I think it’s hilarious how my brother and sister both look all well-rested and healthy, while Dave and I look exhausted, puffy, and pale. Guess which ones are the parents?
P.S. Still no news on the job front. Hoping to hear something one way or the other this week!
