If it wasn’t for my munchkins, I would NEVER go to the bird park. One, I’m not crazy about birds. Other than penguins, birds really do nothing for me. In fact, some are so hideous that I can’t help but think they are out for my blood. Two, I have some issues about zoos and enclosing wild animals in a somewhat domestic situation so it was a little heartbreaking seeing birds static in a small spot and not soaring through the sky 😦
However, with my munchkins and the Tays, I did manage to have a good time at the bird park yesterday 🙂 Like I always say, it really isn’t where, it’s whom you share it with that’s important.
My nephew does not share my disinterest in birds. In fact, he loves them!! So much so when his tooth fell out, he wasn’t too frazzled about it, which says quite a bit about my nephew and the the ability of birds to distract him :p
Watching the three of them wander around the water park amazed me and made me think about how fast they’ve grown. When they first met, my niece, Mabes and Jonah were still in diapers and barely spoke, much less to each other. They are all fond of each other and like all friends, they get into fights every now and then. They also make up and have really fun days like today, which makes it especially nice to watch them grow up and hang out with each other 🙂
So if they asked to go to the bird park again, I’d say yes!! Also, beside penguins, I have to say the owls are pretty cute too. I just might be brave enough to watch Legend of Guardians now.
