Nashville Zoo & Some Other Stuff

My sister came to see me a few weeks ago, and we went to the Nashville Zoo. I've been bugging and waiting to go to this zoo for 3 years now. Well finally I got to go, and while I loved spending time w/ the fam, it was hot and the animals weren't out. They were hiding in the shade, so we didn't get to see many. I can't say I blame them though. I'm gonna go again, when it cools down, and it's not so miserable.

I think everyone found some amusement in me gagging at the spiders. Spiders creep me out, they hold me hostage in my bathroom for hours on end, and they make me gag. So when we were walking the little bug part...I gagged. Not once, not twice, but about a half dozen times. I kept closing my eyes in there. By the way when you are the one behind the camera and taking pictures, closing your eyes doesn't help. *Just a side note also, when you are riding a bike down a hill and you can't get the bike to stop - closing your eyes doesn't help.*

I would love to share pics, but all the pics I got were of my family and I'm not going to put them on the net. I do have to tell you though, that I have the cutest neice on this planet, and she's such a happy baby! I can't wait to see her again, and take pictures of her. You see I was supposed to while they were visiting, but she found it much more important to get sick and then share it w/ the rest of us. Isn't she sweet!

2 weeks ago Lexi was riding a bike at her friends house. They were going down a hill that they were told not to and she couldn't get the bike to stop. So she closed her eyes. She crashed, flipped over the handle bars. She fractured her right arm, and scraped, cut and bruised herself from head to toe. She's ok though, and not hurt too badly, it could've been worse. I hope she learned a lesson from all that.


  1. The zoo sounds like fun! I'm glad you got to go. Ugh, I'm sorry your cute niece got you all sick. That is the worst.
    Wow, poor Lexi. That sounds awful! I'm so glad she's okay girl.

  2. I still say pics or it never happened!

  3. I can't believe that clowny girl flipped over the bike. If she had a job she could call off for the whole week.

  4. Oh man girl! I have to say I still have scars on my knees for all the times I've closed my eyes in hopes my bike wouldn't crash!

    I have a similar fear as your fear of spiders only mine are moths and my family thinks it is a riot too. Real Nice!

    Now I have to go watch Rachel bitch about not being with her man anymore!! Hee Hee

  5. Hot days at a zoo are certainly not fun times.
    And I'm so sorry about Lexi's arm. She must have been so scared.
