Trip to the zoo

Life has been quite busy recently.  Volleyball and school have kept me quite busy.  This week I had practice Monday and Wednesday.  Tuesday I worked late. Thursday we had late dinner with friends. Friday I had 3 volleyball games after school.  I have been working 10 hour days this week... and I am EXHAUSTED!!

I slept for 11 hours Friday night, which was beautiful. I even took a nap later on the afternoon. And still went to bed at a decent time! haha. I still love my sleep :)

Anyway, Saturday we had the privilege of going to the zoo, for the first time, with friends.  Zoos here do not have as many rules, or at least enforced rules, as in America.  We were able to get close, put our hands through cages, feed animals, pet animals, and walk all over the crazily placed exhibits.  My pictures do not reveal everything we saw.  We saw deer, crocodiles, turtles, and other things that I did not take pictures of.  Sadly we did not get to see the giraffes :( We did see lots of monkeys though so Moe was very happy!

Cute little family

Moe hit this one in the head throwing bananas at them.  He did catch one though and eat it!!

After the zoo we went and had delicious Japanese food for lunch.  Then Moe and I went to the export store and I was able to buy pants that fit me for the first time in over a year.  I am pumped.  Sadly I only found one pair in the styles that I wanted so I guess I will have to go back again and look for more!!

Overall it was a wonderful day. Today, Sunday, I have work for school to do. I want to cook dinner to have some leftovers for lunches. I hope to keep it a relaxing but productive day! It has already started that way by watching the Buckeyes!!!!!!! Go Bucks!
