Stephen's First Zoo Adventure

One day I just got tired of it. 

I told Mommy that it has been a very long time
since I got to go adventuring.
 I decided that we were going to go to the zoo.

I have read lots of books about animals
but I had to see for myself if they were real or not.
Ha! Just as I thought. 
Check out this "Polar Bear". 
He's about as real as Big Foot!

Oh, wait a minute...
that one is real.
Real scary!
I had to hold brother to keep him safe.

After seeing the bear,
I was really ready to see some more REAL animals.
Like a Gator!, I said real please!

Well, let's just say this was the great zoo of fake animals.
The real part of the zoo was closed cuz they were building something.
I did have tons of fun though.
It's not everyday a boy gets to sit on a gator or a toad.
The rock climbing wasn't bad either.

And the food?
I found the bestest thing EVER!!
Corn dogs!!!
(Especially the dipping into ketchup part)

I hope you don't mind if I tell you about 
another zoo adventure again someday.
Cuz I still need to investigate things like
Lions, Zebra's, Giraffes and Monkeys.
And I might just need to eat another corn dog!
