How’d I End up with a Zoo?

howd i end up with a zoo

I had an ant problem so I got an anteater. 


I had a lot of weeds so I got a goat.


When my plumbing busted I got an elephant


who broke the stairs so I got a giraffe.

I got a lion for security


and a zebra for decoration.

Sometimes it seems like I have a zoo ; )

By the way, this guy has a brother. Read about him here!

Going to the zoo is definitely on our summer bucket list.  How about you?

  1. You are amazing Ann. You are totally creative!

    I love the zoo and really love taking the kids down to the DC zoo. However, I don’t like the hot more than i like the zoo. I leave the zoo for the fall when it’s cooler.

    Wimp, I know!

    On my summer bucket list is to get out and do creative stuff outside as much as possible. I want to learn from nature this summer. Or at least have the kids learn from nature – and I stay in the AC :)

    I hope you are having a great night!
