Jack's Zoo Shenanigans

It had been two years since we had been to the zoo so it was time. Living with Jack is like going to the zoo every day so when you mix the two together things get really wild. I was prepared with the backpack leash. It was a great thing that I had it. Before I get to the Jack shenanigans let me share a few precious pictures that makes it look like we had a breezy relaxing time.

The first thing we did was feed the fish and then headed toward the penguins. Jack kept sticking his fingers into the area trying to touch them. Then suddenly we hear Jack screaming "penguin stop biting me". I had to pull Jack's finger out of the penguin's mouth. It was bleeding but Jack didn't cry and he kept sticking his fingers back in there. In October Jack got bit by a pig at the pumpkin patch. The boy just loves animals and can't keep his hands off of them. His hands bring me to the next Jack zoo story.

It was Toad Day at the zoo and throughout the zoo they had small stations set up for kids to learn about different toads and frogs. Some stations had ice cream or coloring. Jack and I walked up to one station that had two small plastic cages on a table. We walk up and the woman starts saying "this is the world's most poisonous frog". At that time Jack grabs the cage and takes off. The woman is yelling "don't open it, don't open it". Thankfully I had him on the leash so we were able to get the cage from him before he could open it. I have a feeling that the worlds most poisonous frog will be kept in something a little more secure next year. Y'all pray for me.


  1. That's so cool that they have themed days, like Toad days. The zoo is so much fun. Oh Jack! He's a fun one!! haha.

  2. I can see why it's been two years since you've gone. That boy is wild!

  3. Oh my gosh! You are brave! I don't know if I would go back. Jack sure likes to have a good time!

  4. Mama, you have your hands full! What an adventure. Great stories to tell Jack's girlfriends down the road.
