Before I hung our list on the wall, I added ZOO. I don't normally like the Zoo but my kids love it and being the selfless Mother that I am....I added it.
A few days later, I was contacted by a PR firm asking if I'd like to take my family to the Denver Zoo and taste some cheese at the Loaf Love Tour? She had me at cheese.
Sunday, we were VIP guests of Tillamook Cheese at the Zoo and it was such a fun experience! I have to mention here that my husband (bless his heart) still thinks that you all are my imaginary friends in my computer but now he's starting to understand that his trophy wife is somebody on the internet.
Mallory is just running around calling herself a VIP now.
The weather was perfect....not too hot and although it took us forever to find parking, it really wasn't that crowed.
We loved seeing all of the monkeys (even the ones that were giving each other a massage) and birds and I was thrilled to find a little hut selling Coors Light. Just like at the ball game....it was the best beer I've ever tasted! A big Bear smiled at me and made my day. Keith says he was baring his teeth....not smiling and that he wanted to eat me.
Soon we found ourselves in front of the brand new Toyota Elephant Passage! It is really amazing and so beautiful.
We stopped for lunch at Kamala Cafe just outside of the Elephant Passage Amphitheater. This is when we learned that there was going to be a show with the largest animal at The Denver Zoo. His name is Groucho and he weights 11,500 pounds!
He put on a great show and we loved every minute of it! Even the part when Groucho showed us the aftermath of eating 250 pounds of food a day.
Thank you Tillamook Cheese for a great day at the zoo!
