An unlikely combination to be sure, but the second day I was with Collin's family, he was off work and wanted to start the day with cronuts.
Now, if you're unfamiliar with this food craze, it's a cross between a croissant and a donut and there's a little bakery Collin likes that serves them. We picked out a variety to try...cinnamon sugar, vanilla sugar, white chocolate with chocolate sprinkles and peanut butter Nutella. They were all good, but the purist in me liked the vanilla sugar the best.
After our impromptu breakfast, we headed for the zoo. It was an overcast day and we saw a lot of critters, like these monkey guys.
...and these bird guys.
And did I mention the fruit bats? Creepy, nasty things.
They also have a big aquarium there and we said hello to this guy. "Duuuuuuuuude." (Name that movie...)
Then I tried the the silhouette technique which is kind of cool.
James loved seeing all the different fish.
He loved seeing everything, especially when he could run around.
This is a fairly yucky shot, but I love it anyway....my boy and his boy.
This guy is actually a little bit famous. If you saw the video clip that went viral on Facebook of the gorilla that took a run at a zoo window and cracked the glass, that's this guy...at this zoo. He and Collin had a little stare down.
