Our Norfolk Zoo Trip

This weekend we decided to visit The Norfolk Zoo. The weather was right for it. None of us had ever been there before so we decided to check it out.

A few quick shots while we wait to get to the admission window.

Miley the Build-a-Bear had to come along to see the animals as per Gisselle.

I tried getting several pictures of the indoor animals but do to extremely low lighting and the filthy windows everything came out terrible.

A cool train to ride around the Zoo(a WHOPPING 10min ride that cost $2 per person over 2 yrs old). Definitely a cash cow for the Zoo. Full every trip making almost $400 an hour! I need to get in that game!

This was Gisselle’s HIGHLIGHT of the day.She was talking about Giraffes since we pulled up to the Zoo. She almost had one actually lick her hand but some ignorant kids next to us decided to freak out and start swinging at the Giraffe as it leaned toward the walk way.

Gisselle’s visit to the HUNT CLUB FARM

Gisselle had a field trip for school this past week. The kids got a trip to the local Hunt Club Farm. they throw a lot of nice events here for the holidays, from Halloween to Christmas. This season its the fall festival mixed with the Halloween theme after dark. Gisselle and the kids were treated to a hay ride, where they got to see horse, cows, donkeys, llamas, and various other animals, as well as the farm buildings, horse stables, and farm equipment. This was a very nice outing I was allowed to chaperon, and even I had a ball. The kids got to go around the grounds and touch the various animals, play on a playground, and the most popular Hay pile that they all jumped in/threw/bombarded fellow classmates. The kids even got to pick a free pumpkin out of the pumpkin patch before they left. Right after we left the weather came out and it started to rain. So we got lucky, Gisselle got worn out, and all the kids had a GREAT time!

This Wild Turkey (pardon the pun) was chasing all the little annoying kids around. At first they started to chase him, but he came back with a vengeance!

Local Sighting Nissan Skyline R35 GT-R

Recently I took my little girl to a Fall Festival for a school field trip at a local place called Hunt Club Farm. They do alot of things for the holidays and with the fall being here and Halloween they have a nice deal set up. I pulled into the parking lot and noticed my FAVORITE car parked to my left. So I got parked very quickly and jumped out of the car to inspect it up close. The owner was still in the car, I knocked on his window to ask permission to shoot some photos of his car, he was deep in the use of his laptop and I Phone (this guy does not deserve an R35!). He was reluctant and gave me the “am i getting Car Jacked look” But he was cool and said yes. I was very short of getting an indecent exposure being around this car, but I grabbed my photos, walked away letting my pulse slow. It was nice to see the car in person instead of photos, I just kinda wished the driver was a little more of the tuning type, not a “I have the money and I bought it because it was expensive” type aura.
