Okay, so I didn't really get an elephant for my birthday...but The Hub surprised me with a One-on-One with an elephant from the Colorado Zoo. Her name was Lucy. She painted for me, and let me clean her feet. Which by the way, were larger then my HEAD! We celebrated my birthday a few days earlier, because my birthday was during the week day. I must say, this surprise was one of the best gifts ever. I can be picky with "gifts" and I'm not much of a gift gal, I rather quality time. I know, i'm an odd bird. Well if you know me, I LOVE animals-like love them...I wanted to take Lucy home with me, or at least hug her leg like a monkey. Neither happened, but a girl can dream. I think I talked about Lucy and elephants for the next few days after seeing her. Did you know they have tail hair!? Not dinky soft hair, but like weed whacker plastic sized hair!! For those that don't know what that looks like, its like plastic the width of say half the diameter of a q-tip handle. We got to hold a piece of it, just shows how LARGE these guys were. Anyway it was the best time at the zoo, and we ended the day in downtown at a cute restaurant named Shuga's. I love that place, one of a kind sandwiches, Italian sodas and totally adorable decor. The Hub invited my besty-friend to tag along, so we of course chatted away...poor hubby. So anyhoo I just wanted to share a few pictures from that day, and make sure to tell my sweet Hub, thank you for THE best gift. Ever!
