Anyone Got a Light?

Come on baby, light my zoo

Today, we went to Zoo Lights at Lincoln Park Zoo with my girlfriend, Kate, and her parents, Jeff and Caroline. Uncle D and almost-Aunt T came along too.

Don't drop her Jeff!

You might say, it was an enlightening experience.

You look even shorter from up here Uncle D!

Uncle D made sure I had a good view. Reminds me of a joke (pretty sure Great-Uncle Denny first told me this one)... a blind man walks into a store with his seeing eye dog and makes his way to the middle of the aisle. Suddenly, he grabs his dog by the tail and starts waving it around like a lasso. Immediately a clerk rushes over and says, "Excuse me sir, what are you doing? Is there a problem?" "Nope," says the blind man, "I'm just having a look around."

That explains it.

The Ape house was very educational. I learned about the Homo Erectus.

You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours

I also learned how babies were made.

Where's the Hannukah bush?

Daddy and Jeff were kind of matchy matchy with their black coats and YouTube hats.

Are we having fun yet?

Kate and I were also matchy matchy with our 18 layers and red noses.

Good for the kiddies at some point.
