So! Moment At the Zoo

So, we're at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs taking a break in the Penguin house, resting on the benches and minding our own business. The penguin-keepers had drained the water and were sterilizing the exhibit, but we were told it would only take a few minutes to fill it back up. We decided to wait, since this was one of our favorites--watching the penguins frolic in the water.

In the meantime, we captured these adorable 'love birds' holding hands...

and here they are taking a little stroll...

and then SUDDENLY right before our virgin eyes (or at least our kiddos') this little G-Rated show turned into Sex Education 101 when our two little LOVE PENGUINS decided to begin FROLICKING in a horizontal position. (We didn't want to interrupt their private moment with pictures!)


Ok...moving right along. Let's go see the Hippo's shall we?

It's All SO! Good!


  1. GET A NEST! Thanks, you gave me the first chuckle of the day.

  2. How funny! I probably would have blushed if I'd seen that.

    Did you see the new Rocky Mountain Wildlife exhibit? We haven't been to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in a couple of years, but I'd like to see that new exhibit, and maybe ride the skyride.

  3. HA HA HA!!! Get a nest!! Love it!!

    I had a similar experience with my niece and nephew at a turtle exhibit! Nature! It ain't always pretty! :-)

    Have a great week,

  4. LOL!!! What is this world coming to ....:)

  5. Hello! Get a nest!


    We have had monkeys throw poop at us. You just never know what you are going to get with animals!

  6. Hi Brenda,

    Cute story and nice pictures. Get a Nest!!! I had to smile at that one. We have friends who have not been married for very long. For the first 2 or 3 years they were married they were just loving all over each other in public. It was a little embarrassing. One day I laughed and told them - GET A ROOM!!! They just laughed at that and kept right on smooching, cooing and holding hands.

  7. Ah, I remember it well Brenda. And I did get pictures, but we won't share with the world, ok?
    I loved the love birds too. What a fun day!
    Your little big sis
