Spring Break in Africa

Or, the closest thing to it, the zoo, where we gazed at the zebras,

and the sleeping lion. I don't think he ever does anything but sleep! Maybe he's onto something!

We banged on the drums,


and played some games.



We laughed at the monkeys.



And they laughed right back at us. Jeez lady, do you think your sunglasses could get any bigger? It isn't 1976!



Oh, hello there.


That's more like it! Although some of us didn't want to smile because "eeeeeeek! the sun is in my eyes mom." Meltdown soon to follow. Nothing a chocolate milkshake can't fix.


A ha!



The men braved the line alongside the other starving folk,


and the eldest son, being the next in line for adulthood, performed his duties bravely,


delivering the goods to the womenfolk in the waiting vechicle. Behold, The Dick's Deluxe:



You're going to need some Windex for that computer screen now.
(I don't even want to know how many points is in one of these bad boys)
*Dick's restaurants have been a Seattle staple since 1954. You can read more about their history by clicking here.

Okay, I'm craving a burger now.

Although, I'd be afraid to put anything called 'Dick's Deluxe' in my mouth...
