Last night I was invited to go to the Denver Zoo.
The last time I was at the zoo was for our 4th grade field trip and the lions began to mate right as we got to their habitat.
This time it was for a special event for my sister's work.
It was so different without all the crowds...school groups...hot sweltering heat. I wasn't counting 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8, 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8, over and over to make sure I had all 8 kids still in my group with me. I could actually enjoy myself.
It was the perfect way to spend a summer evening.
