Last Monday, (presidents day) was also a special day in the Harris Household! It was Jakes birthday! Jake turned 33 years old! Wahoo! Both of us were so excited he had the day off work, and it landed on his birthday! Could he be any luckier?! Jake really wanted to go to the zoo for one part of his birthday, so after a fun breakfast at The Park Cafe, we headed to Hogle Zoo. The parking lot was packed…and guess what? We got rockstar parking. I guess thats plays into birthday privileges 🙂 We were there from 12:30 to 3:30pm and it was an awesome time to be there! Animals were getting feed, and many of them were out enjoying the sun and having fun! We also got to see the cute polar bear and grizzlies! We have never seen them at the zoo before! Here are some fun pictures we got from the days adventures!
OK! This Jaguar was the neatest! He was so much fun, and a bit scary to many people around us! He was jumping up on the glass and scratching and growling! You could see his breath on the glass! The crazy thing is, the glass must be pretty thick because I couldn’t hear his grow but I could see him growling quite intensely! He was so awesome! Here are some pictures we got of him and he pounced the wall several times at those by us, and even Jake and I! We felt so lucky 🙂 What an awesome encounter! I have always wanted a wild cat of my own. Its actually on my bucket list to own one and be friends 🙂
My, what large teeth you have….
