Day 1--Part 2...Day 2--Part 2

Ok...So we get on the bus that takes us to our rental car, they drop us off...I take a quick inventory...MY CAMERA!! I left my camera!! I run back over to the bus and bang on the doors, yelling for her to please open them! ACK! She does and I get my camera. Phew! Derek would have NOT been soo happy with me...and I wouldn't have blamed him. Not one bit!
So, we go check into our room, get a little settled in and decide that the boys are going to the beach and I was going to go to a scrapbook store that I found on the internet. The plan was that I would go with them after I finished shopping (which was so fun...it was the cutest little store, EVAH!!!) I'm checkin' out and my phone rings. I'm thinking "Perfect timing!" but then "Wait, they can't be done already".
Derek: What are you doing?
Me: Checkin' out.
Derek: Bryson pooped his pants (in an extremely annoyed voice)
Me: Oh no! :(
So, I got to spend an hour drinking Peppermint tea next door, while reading the paper...and Derek had to clean some poop pants. (Sorry, Honey!!)
We went back to the hotel, ordered pizza and called it a night. Day 1 is over!!

Ok...So now back to day two...I forgot about our trip to Walgreen's before the zoo. It was so awesome...NOT!! LOL!
I asked Derek if we could go buy another memory card for my camera b/c I only had like 40 pics left on it and didn't have anything I could delete yet. He said sure! I remembered seeing a Walgreen's the day before, so we headed there. I went in with Corbin (he wanted to get a disposable camera) and quickly found what I needed. They had a 4GB card for only 29.99...pretty good deal, right? It took a while to find someone to help me, which I needed because the little boogers are like locked on to the little hanger thing. So the man goes and gets a screw driver, but he can't get the thing off. As he's trying to pry the little lock off, I notice that it says for SD?? only. So I ask him what that means and he asks me how old my camera is...I tell him a few months and then he just kinda looks at me weird. So I say ok, let me just get the regular one. It was 55.99...but I'm thinking the other one is on sale becuase its for a camera they don't make anymore or something. Well, he still can't get the little lock off, so he just rips the card off hanger. Wow...ok, thanks!
I pay, go the car and ask Derek the same thing...what is for SD?? only? He doesn't know either. But I tell they had one half the price...so being the frugal man that he is, he goes back in and gets the cheaper one. He gets back to the car and the package is that plastic stuff that you need the jaws of life to get into. After 10 minutes of wrestling with it...TA-DA...we pry it open. He opens up the cute little plastic box it comes in, I reach to grab it and it pops out. Where does it land, you might ask...down in the crevice between the seat and the middle console. As I'm wedging my hand between this uber tight space, I see that it is slipping...slipping into no man's land. It's about to fall down under the rail that the chair slides back and forth on. I yell, stretch my long fingers vigorously, and it's gone. It's gone. Derek says, "What do you mean it's gone?" I tell him again, it's like, gone! We will have to remove this seat to get it out...it's G-O-N-E!
Seriously!!
So, he calmly says to go in and just get the 2GB card and the two will equal the amount of the first I had purchased. But, I start crying instead. Lovely!
He goes in, comes back out and we leave. As we approach the light, he says...very calmly, "I just lost it in there." He gives me the story. I agreed. He lost it.
I hear Corbin in the back say, "Day 2, chapter 2..."
But now we are on our way to the zoo...so it's all good.
Sorry that story was so long...but it was just too good not to include.

Ok, now more pics of the zoo. :)

We saw some pandas...


the little baby was sleeping in the tree...so cute!!


and my favorite...the meerkats...even cuter!


Then we broke for lunch...some were feeling a little sad...


and other a little...crazy?



elephants...


giraffes...


gross camels...


and some giant koi...We have a koi pond, but ours are no where near this big! :)


I wanted to post the clouded leopard again, so you click on it and see how pretty he is.


Whew! That was a lot of work! I hope you enjoyed our day at the zoo. And I know you've probably seen these animals before, but I wanted to share anyways! :D

Yesterday Bry and I spent the day at the 6666 ranch in Guthrie, visiting friends and then to Abilene to visit more friends...so I will post some pics of that along with Day 3 of our trip at LegoLand.

Sorry this is so long! Hope you enjoyed!!
