Throo the Zoo

Neither Kevin nor myself would ever acclaim to be first-rate runners. But who could pass up an opportunity to run with the elephants? With finals finished, we got to take an entire Saturday and play all day. A 5K throo the zoo (why is it called marketing genius to misspell a word anyway?) and then free admission to the world of zoological wonders. Yes, we are those people who stop and read every sign by every animal and hold up everyone else behind us. To justify our slowness, I'll teach you some of the random things we learned:

* Giraffe babies are 6 feet tall when they're born. (Dear mother-in-law, though you had 16 pounds of twin baby inside of you, at least they weren't as tall as they are now at birth).

* Warthogs don't really have warts. It's just cartilage deposits. That'll help with their self-esteem.

* Vampire bats are actually very intelligent creatures. Intelligent but still very yucky and frightening.

Kevin's body double

Now let's all join hands for a rousing chorus:

We're going to the zoo, zoo, zoo
Won't you come too, too, too
We're going to the zoo, zoo, zoo
And we're gonna stay all day!

Hi!! I am so excited I just came across your website from a link on Angela and Justin's! It is wonderful to hear about your recent months of married life and adjustments. I am so glad to see your sweet, super fun spirit shining through your posts.

Our website is really old - but I am going to work on updating it this week. It will get a lot more use in the coming months because we have found out that Sander's job is going to transfer him to Aberdeen, Scotland for a year starting this August. We are really excited and see God's hand moving in huge ways to prepare us for this trip. We are going to put the whole story online soon, so I won't babble on about it now.

It was so good to run into your website today. Send me your home/email address as I would love to update your info in my address book.

Have a wonderful Monday!

Yea for an update. How fun! You guys deserved a break and some fun! I'm really missing you guys lately. Can't wait for a "Peek fix" (that includes you now too, Mrs. Peek!!)
