Last Friday, I accompanied my daughter on a trip with her Boys and Girls club to the New Orleans Zoo and IMAX theater. I was asked to help out with the children and I happily accepted. I was well aware of how hot it was going to be and even then, I don’t think I was as prepared as I should have.
I’m a person that has to snack all day because my body is used to eating.. all. day. Now, when I mention snack, I usually mean fruit, cheese, nuts and the like between my big meals. And since I did not prepare the night before, the results ended in lightheadedness, a growling stomach, and anxiety.
I did manage to pull myself together for my little group. They were a handful, but not in a bad more. More of a handful because of their eagerness and attentiveness. But I enjoyed every minute with them and I didn’t have to fuss at all.
Apparently, the birds are not here for our voyeurism.
This gorilla, well it’s just too damn hot for her to make any other face but this one.
Looking after four kids is a job, but I managed to be able to take a few photos in between opening drinks, giving boosts to see the animals, grasping hands, and looking all around me every second to make sure everyone was together. The picture below is one of my favorites aside from the children on the carousel.
But him, serving face. Can I get a YASSSSS!?
All in all, we survived and we made it. We were both so beat that we went to bed around 7:30 PM and didn’t wake up until around 9:00 AM the next morning. My daughter was glad I was able to tag along and that made my day more than she could ever imagine. We’re just over here making some memories. (:
