But, the good news is the zoo here has some pretty big hills and lots of ground to cover, so I think I’ll skip the gym and join the zoo! That’s right folks, I just paid $119 for a zoo membership so that I can get some exercise and hang out with the animals. Plus, I can always bring a friend for free, so if you’re coming to visit us, pack your tinnies! My cousin Brett had a great idea. She said that I in addition to just walking the park, I should set up a training course and carry small weights. I should do squats at the polar bears, lunges at the monkeys, bicep curls at the penguins. I think I’ll start with walking first. Hopefully I can miss the crowds by walking the morning. It should be fun, and another reason for all our friends with kids to come visit (ie, Rebecca and Wade)!
