Last Thursday we went to Zoomance A.K.A. romance at the Detroit Zoo! This was a really fun date you guys. It was gorgeous out, there wasn't huge crowds of people and ALL of the animals were out. Also this was a 21+ (although I would like to check some of these so called adults i.d.'s because I am certain there were some teeny boppers amongst the real adults. Or maybe I'm just that old) event and I didn't have to allow a bunch of littles to stand in front of me because, well, they're kids and it's just rude to stand in front of a child even though I'm only 5'2" and a lot of the time the 9 year old standing in front of me is only about 1/2" shorter, effectively making it impossible for me to see anything, EVER. End rant.
Back to how awesome Zoomance was. There was a band playing good music and bars set up for those of whom are not with child. I wish I would have known about this last year.
I did forget that A LOT of walking would be involved. By the time I got to the back I was tempted to tell a zoo employee that I needed a ride back to the front on one of their motorized scooters. I powered through though, like a champ. Baby and I were still exhausted all day Friday though. Baby Bloom usually wakes me up when he hears his daddy's alarm sound off around 4:30 or 5am with some super strong kicks, but Friday he was not having it. He didn't get his groove on until about 10am! I considered the fact that I may have been in such a deep sleep that I didn't even feel his jabs, but I think it seemed cuter that he was tired from all the zoomancing too ;)
